My latest project has been creating a backyard oasis at the Florida house. Drew up some plans with a landscape architect -- patio pavers, tropical plants, Italian fountain, the feeling of a Mediterranean courtyard. Then I added patio furniture, an outdoor rug and a few flower pots (not in the photo), and here are the results. Always a work in progress, but it's almost time for a party on the patio. Add some sangria, a little music, a few choice guests, and we're done!
