Outdoor living spaces or come, sit, relax!

In addition to growing organic food, the other commodity we are working on, is relaxation.

In order to produce relaxation we wanted comfort, shade and quiet. Once those qualities were established, we went with what we do best. To surround ourselves with our favorite things. A pair of comfortable outdoor chairs, some pottery oil lamps, a bit of shade and some decor to enjoy as well.

Tucked back in the far corner of our backyard, this little space is so relaxing. About all we hear is the breeze streaming through the wind chime and the birds singing.

The shade sail is perfect, allowing for light from the sun, yet not the glare.

This lamp table was made from re-purposed fence boards. 

While we were relaxing on Sunday, we checked the nesting box to see if any bird families had moved in. Sadly no, then we realized the nesting box had no perch to land on before entering. 

To fix that, we made one out of an old slotted spoon bowl, that had been flattened.  Maybe this perch will provide the needed amenity to have a bird family to take up residence.

While my husband was up on the ladder, he took a photo of the garden, from the tree top,

it really is beautiful!
