I decided life would not be worth living without a “cocktail” area in my backyard. Since I am so lucky to have a substantial backyard, I can pretty much do whatever I want here without many size limitations. On the flipside, it has become a multi-year project. But in steady-eddie-style I do a few big projects each year, slowly working my way towards the back of the yard – creating my little slice of heaven in the city, bit by bit. Year 1: patio, dining area and garden plots, year 2: sods and flower beds. This year: a second seating area, named “The Cocktail Area” which provides me with a great excuse to drink cocktails at least a few times a week.
