Gazebo, Part Four. Seriously


video
And now for the big Rehab Gazebo Before post!

Raw material.

Yeah, that's my perch, where all the blogging magic happens.


Are we ready to entertain today?
I'm not sure if we passed final inspection.
But we weren't slackin', I assure you.
The carriage bolts were put in place in the gazebo footings. In case of hurricane, 
these will lift out easily and fold to the side.


We needed to repot the ponytail palm desperately. I think the photos tell the story.







Yeah, it wasn't coming out.












It all got done, I promise. Pop by tomorrow for the big reveal,
and to our bloggy friends here in the USA,
Happy 4th of July!

Oh yes, smashing the pot was absolutley the right call. I am already picking out what to wear for tomorrow.

That parti-eyed Inspektor Kitty is gorgeous!

I am so impressed with your garden gnomes, they will tackle any job! I love your patio space, it looks like the perfect place to sit back with a glass of something & enjoy the day. Can't wait for the big reveal!

I'm posting this after admiring the grand reveal- Sunny, this particular post made me so happy for you! Normally, I'm a grumpy cow, rather sour face and not too cheerful.But just thinking how lucky you guys are to have each other sort of made me think that life can't be all that frown- inspiring! If I ever had kids, I'd want our family to be like yours. I am aware that all that glitters ain't gold, but freakin' heck, you know how to make it sparkle!!
