From my back, er … front … er, WHATEVER porch!


 (For Translator,  music, writing etc see side bar.)

      We have this challenge from thekitchengarden to provide a back porch view.  My problem is that facing our smaller pool we have a patio from which doors lead off into both the formal area of the house and into the kitchen, so in a way it is front and back all at the same time. 

However, sitting on the patio facing the larger pool on the other side, one overlooks what is really the back garden – but we call it the front garden.

So which picture to show?

Oh, what the heck; both!

   The fence past the pool marks the boundary of the ‘dog-proofed’ (I wish!) area of the garden.  If I win a Lotto I will fence the whole perimeter, and remove that completely.

  10. Why do you ever leave and go anywhere else? It looks like paradise to me. And you have sun. That’s a real bonus. I know, I’m British.

    I bet you need a lot of chlorine for that big pool, or do you use salt?

    I like the bigger pool, but it looks like a lot more maintenance.
