A Peaceful Patio – part two

So…. once I finished the outdoor patio, it was time not only, to bring the new bench, but also begin to plant a beautiful serene shade garden to enhance the beauty of the surrounding area.  I planted vinca, fern and coneflowers and will soon add a Japanese Maple or two, plus some geranium and more pachysandra.

Of course, as soon as I placed the bench in just the right spot – a HUGE branch came down!

After taking some time to cut it all up for firewood, I finally had a beautiful spot that I hope will continue to become more and more enticing for a morning coffee or an afternoon meditation!

Here are the final BEFORE and AFTER photos:
