First, I love my patio. I love sitting out there in the evenings surveying my land (ha!) and watching Henry cavort in the grass.
But it was sadly neglected while my whole house purge was going on. Now that that’s over and all my extra stuff has either been sold or carted to the thrift store I finally had time to focus on getting this outdoor space back in order.
The lights wouldn’t stay up
I started with the lights and found that the problem seemed to be in the way they were hung. Before I had them running vertically from the house to the planters and the wind just kept taking them down.
