The above picture shows the start of his project. My husband got some inspiration from magazine photos. He then drew up his own design.
Here's the finished project, before we painted. I had a cushion made covered in waterproof fabric.
And here's some changes three years later. We added the rock to make it feel a little more grounded.
Twelve years later and the trees are growing nicely. The swing is located toward the back of our property. It's a lovely place to sit in the early evening and gaze over our garden.
Here's what it looks like now. As you can see we've made a few more changes. But isn't that what creating a garden is about. Nothing is static, but always changing and evolving. It is in need of some painting which is on my to do list for this year.
A thought to ponder: Enjoy the little things in life....for one day you'll look back and realize they were the big things. Robert Brault
