When it comes to backyard projects, The Fancy Flea Girls are never done. Erica's poor husband has been working on his oasis vision for more than 11 years! Her backyard has undergone so many transformations over the years...a lush fishpond lagoon, a hot tub hot spot, a patio installation, a built-from-scratch pergola, the petite patio and so much more. You would think she might give her husband a little rest...
This is the pergola Keith built from scratch (pic is from last summer)! It is super sturdy and especially lovely now that the swing has been painted fire engine red! The pergola has completely different set of furnishings now -- so guess where you can pick up some of the items in the picture...you guessed it...The Fancy Flea on May 1st.
This is a quick "before" pic of the northern corner of the backyard. This little forgotten corner of the yard has become the compost heap and dumping ground (and official rest area for the wheelbarrow).
It was ready for a major makeover! Keith and Erica have been dreaming of an "Azalea Hill" for years and finally all of the pieces have come together. Keith worked tirelessly this weekend (in the very hot sun) -- he is simply the bees knees when it comes to husbands. Notice the little black cast iron chairs by the lemon tree...they will be available for purchase at The Fancy Flea on May 1st!
WOO HOO! New azalea bushes, a new fence and a new cast iron set! This lonely little corner is looking up! All that is missing is a paver "apron" for the garden bed, mulch and some sod! Erica and Keith are this much closer to finishing "Azalea Hill"of their dreams. The new cast iron set was found in Sun City Center and has a great history! (Now, you see why the little black chairs need a new home and will be available at The Fancy Flea on May 1st.)
Huge "props" to Keith for another great backyard transformation
We are linking up to Metamorphis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch. Take a look at what kept Susan busy over the weekend!
