Waiting for the sun

Our garden is quite small and the patio doesn't get the sun at the right time of day for us to make full use of it so we decided to have decking constructed at the other side behind the garage where the afternoon sun appears.
(Sun - you know that bright globe that appears in the sky in some places.)
The actual decking was constructed in very damp weather, glad we weren't doing it ourselves, there would have been some swearing going on and it may not have been finished yet. The sun came out as the landscaper was clearing up.

It was his idea to put the railing on the end, but I suppose he knows his job because it really finishes it off.

We were told to get it stained/protected/whatever sooner rather than later. I ordered the required stain online and delivery was spot-on. Very good company to deal with, numerous e-mails and texts to inform me of delivery times etc.

On sunday the weather was perfect for the job of staining, staying dry for a good few hours after we had finished. Since then it has hardly stopped raining but we managed to get out there again yesterday and put the furniture in place and move a few plants.

 I love this angled bit at the end and that planter seems made for it.
Hopefully now we will get some sun and be able to get out and enjoy our new area, I do hope so. I can just imagine myself out there knitting.
