New favorites in the back yard

We have a new little patio and sitting area in our back yard!





















Our back yard is split-level and these great steps sort of led to nothing before this patio was installed.
We already had these two chairs, the metal plant stand and the metal decor hanging on the fence.  The little stool/table and the fern are new.
A very dear friend built us this little cedar arbor several years ago.  We love it and it happily holds my hanging baskets and the metal chandy that I adore.
The other new addition is three newly planted hydrangea bushes.  They are called Blushing Bride - gorgeous.
They grace our step-stone path that leads to the hammock.
I love this time of year!

Charming area you have here...enjoy it my friend!! I just found out that I am coming to Dallas on Saturday and staying until Tuesday. Didn't you tell me that McKinney is a great little town to shop antiques? If you have any tips on where I should go for some good pickin', I would so love to hear about it. I will be shopping Canton 1/2 day on Friday and all day on Saturday. Is there any "cool" antiques shows going on this weekend in the Dallas/FW area?

Blessings,
Linda
