Ready for backyard time

We enjoy our backyard so very much.  Not only does it have my wonderful gardener's cottage, and a hot tub and a pool .. it is our little corner of paradise.  It has come such a long way in such a short time.  I was going through my pictures today and stumbled on the backyard of days past.  Take a look, and this is AFTER we put the patio in and the path to the grill. 

When we first bought this house it had a 4x4 stoop out the back door.
So the concrete came in with our patio furniture and the grills.
Vandy built a "true" grilling patio off the concrete patio right
outside the backdoor in 2009.  It is so much nicer than the first attempt!

And then we added a hot tub with the stone walkway and more lilies!

Of course, Vandy coaxed me out of building my dream house by offering us a pool,
and the million dollar vinyl fence.

One of the many reasons to have a pool in Ohio.  Addie and her soccer team from high school.

Vandy completed his water feature.  It was a three year project.
It is wonderful in the morning with a cup of java, a book and the birds chirping.

The jungle, I am for sure going to have to do some splitting of plants!

So I ask you, would you like to come and stay awhile?  Lunch in the cottage, food from the "new" grilling patio and a dip in the pool?   Glass of wine and a soak in the hot tub to finish off the evening?!
