SHOW & TELL - New Pergola

More participants are here at Kelly's

In summer it can be quite warm in Belgium, but it rains so that you can't sit outside. Last year I fulfilled a long lasting wish, a "roof" over a part of the patio, so that I could sit outside even when it rains. This week finally it was delivered and put up.

Love the colors in your kitty painting Gattina.

And the roof for the patio...LOL, thing is...we're thinking of tearing ours OUT. Makes the house too dark with the roof and all over the patio.

Excellent show n tell. Mine's posted, I do hope you can stop by and visit with me sometime today. Happy Friday.

Yes, gotta have a patio cover. I love mine...it provides a bit of shade in the summer and helps keep the sun out of the kitchen.

That's a lovely cat painting, so bright and cheerful, yet so relaxing with the sleeping kitty.

I could do with one of those here in N Ireland. I am sure it will be well used.

Congratulations!! Hehehe it looks pretty green there to us Norwegians. We would be sitting outside NOW hehehe anytime the sun was shining anyway. You would not believe the weather we sit out in. Anything over 7-8 degrees is fair game!

Belinda said...

What a lovely structure, Gattina...you are sure to enjoy it for many years to come, not just when its rainy, but all the time. And if the cat approves, all is well. :-) Neat painting too!
