V worked so hard on the deck and it is such a fabulous outdoor space that I wanted to share some more photos with you. He is quite pleased with himself, with good reason. We have spent more time outside in the evenings than ever before enjoying the space.
And some of the details that I love:
There are still a few things to finish, including the handrails on the stairs but it is quite useable and a wonderful space to sit and enjoy the weather. Yesterday after dinner I sat out and watched the birds. I'm always amazed at the variety we've got. In just a few minutes I saw mourning doves, robins, blue jays, a cardinal, an indigo bunting, a Baltimore Oriole, goldfinches and a multitude of sparrows. We even spied a tree frog creeping along the railing one evening over the weekend.
All in all, I'm thrilled and so, so happy that the man I love could and would do something like this.
