My Backyard Get-Away!

The 3-tier Italian water fountain has been installed.  I was a little nervous at first - thinking it might be too big for the patio, but it turned out perfect.  Had I chosen a smaller water feature,  the patio would have just swallowed it up. 

It was nice to come home after work and sit out on the patio and have a martini.  I have been dreaming about doing this for a year!  The weather is perfect right now for dinner and drinks on the paito.  I am looking forward to inviting friends over for afternoon drinks or maybe even a Spring brunch. 

What I really enjoy the most about my new purchase is that I can enjoy it from the indoors as well.  The effect that I was going for - when guest walk into the great room, the fountain and the paito furniture entice guest to go outside.  The other plus is that when the weather is not so nice, I still have a beautiful view from the great room.  I love this!


  1. I love it, too! You are really going to enjoy this!
