A couple weeks back, I finally got access to my deck. The first thing I did, of course, was get some plants.
Then I began looking for deck furniture. Unfortunately, that was more challenging. I was about a week or two late for most of the clearance sales. And I didn't think a snow blower would be an appropriate choice.
Then I got lucky. I checked on a store off Fairview in Seattle that was a bit out of the way. The only way I knew about it was that they had a giant chair on top of a nearby coffee shop.
I stumbled into David Smith & Company at just the right time. They were wrapping up their teak end of season sale and I picked up a table and four chairs at 50% off.
The next day and the rain and cold weather started.
Now I'm all set for summer. In 2009.
