Flowers and BBQs

It’s finally feeling a bit more like spring/summer weather and so flowers are coming up in the back garden. While we’re still quite weed infested and have a lot of things to figure out, in terms of what we want in the future, it’s beginning to look a lot better.  Here’s a few pics I took the other week:

 

In addition, my husband decided that he wanted to take on the task of building a brick BBQ for the side garden.  He’ll eventually also build a pizza oven next to it (I can’t wait to bake bread in there).

(it’s not actually wonky – bad camera work on my part)

We still have to clean it up a bit, but I’m quite pleased at what my husband has done.  We ordered a gorgeous (and freaking heavy) cast iron grate, the coal holder and a warming grate.  We’ll have to figure out how to protect the grates from rust, other than bringing it inside all the time. Searching for a suitable cover will begin shortly.
