Patio Changes

I decided to change things around on the patio. I had a few reasons, but my main one was to put the table closer to the house and closer to the grill. Light bulb moment I know.
I'm liking how it turned out so far. Though the weather of late has not been conducive to enjoying the great outdoors. A high of 53 yesterday in Texas! In May! Crazy.
(Isn't that bucket cool? My better half brought that home to me one day from an out of biz restaurant. He knows me too well.)
Anyway, changing things around on the patio led to more changes on the patio. We have a fairly large one, so it's kinda hard to make it look right. Especially because this is really the main space for my kids to play, so I don't want to fill it up with my own stuff. If-you-know-what-I-mean...
I'll reveal the rest of the patio changes (such as they are) soon. I might want the puddles to dry up first though.
Meanwhile, you can find me here... Tall glass of... ice water in hand. *sigh*

Post Script: If you are the observant sort then you may notice the fence that surrounds our pool. This is why I don't take many pictures showing the pool. Although the fence is WONDERFUL for safety, it doesn't do much for the view. (it is all totally removable though)

The fence and view look wonderful to me! Lucky you. Safety around pools is very very wise. Enjoy your not so warm day.

Looks like a perfect oasis!

We have the same pool fence! We usually take it down once the pool is open, but I'm contemplating not this year since our youngest will be two and is out and about. It sure is an eye sore!

Jillian,
Love the view from where you are sitting. I also love the bucket with the hydrangeas. Ate they from your garden?

I love your Walmart patio furniture I got the same one last year on summer clearance for $200! Safety always right? Really nice lights above the roof...can you take an evening pic to show them off? Great job!

Looks like an oasis to me. You can have peace of mind with your fence and the little ones. That is worth more than a fancy view.

Is it ok for me to be a little jealous?
