I swear I will take good care of it this time .. and it is all metal .. not heavy cast iron and wood combo I had previously ... that was enough to send me around the bend ;-)
Even before I got the bench I knew what type of grass I wanted to flank it ... and luckily I found some at half price .. you gotta' love that right ?
A wonderful grass called Karley Rose (a fountain grass .. pennisetum oriental) is behind the bench within an obelisk .. I just replaced it last year when my mature one sadly died .. I missed it terribly .. you know how you can become attached to favorite plants ?
In any case .. hopefully the work will start tomorrow .. I will be grunting and groaning a lot I am sure but I know that I will love this little spot of mine so much .. I can hardly wait to see the finished oasis ! ... yes .. I am cleaning the bird bath too !
