~Our New Outdoor Brick Patio and Simple & Sweet Fridays #235~

I wanted to share with you photos of our new outdoor brick patio.
Stan wanted to extend the brick area we had there,
 to have
extra room to enjoy.
I love the aged look of the bricks we picked
 to finish the patio area.
We love using different elements to frame our planting areas.

I decided to take some photos upstairs
 to see this section of the garden.

I love looking onto the vegetable garden
 now to see what's growing.

Next to the patio is our rod iron gazebo.
We hung stained glass windows that my dad and I made.
Looking forward to having our meals in this 
beautiful new garden spot.
From upstairs, I took photos of the area next to the patio.
Our Crepe Myrtles are in full bloom.

Our pink trumpet vine bloomed all summer.
I wanted to share with you a photo I took of Stan when we first started dating.
He lived in San Francisco with his family.
His love for growing plants hasn't changed in 45 years.
Our garden shows it!
I decided to make a dessert to celebrate our new patio area.
Here is the recipe!

Bon Appetit!!
