Our Own English "Garden"

Today Drew and I struck out to our local garden centre, Dobbie's, to indulge my yen to create a small oasis on our miniscule patio... Barring frost killing everything or my horrific lack of a green thumb (you'd never know I worked at TWO greenhouses in my lifetime), they will give us months of beautiful flowers, herbs, and tomatoes! And of course, being manly, Drew HAD to buy a little charcoal hibachi, on which we had an amazing dinner tonite! It was a rather expensive trip, but well worth it!

In the works...

In the right corner.... a large pot with a tomato plant and pansies, and a smaller pot with a beautiful flower I can't remember the name of, as well as a new candle for our table... Ignore the dirt, it'll wash away!

The lovely outdoor lights, and our patio furniture

And in the left... our new hibachi, a pot with I believe a strawflower (GORGEOUS colour!), mint, chives, and pansies again :)

It's just pretty!

Light it up!

Fire pretty!

Our first meal of hamburgers and roasted potatoes
