One thing lead to another

For more than 7 years, we kept the chicken coop on the top patio.
It was easy for me to collect eggs, clean them out and for neighbour to have easy access when feeding.
Our last hen died last week age 7 years 8 months. We are not getting any more, so decided to ditch the coop. which is quite rotten.
We then took a long. hard. critical look at our once tidy patio
And started work.
One thing lead to a bit of pruning, then more, then getting rid of old pots and detritus.
We have a way to go, but thank goodness my husband is recovered enough from major surgery to help me.
At the start now...will do pics as we go along

    The bones of a really nice sitting out area there! Shouldn't take long just to tidy it up. and then you can start planning. How about one of those swish hanging comfy egg chairs?

    I had considered it, but since his surgery, he needs a 'fixed seat' (if you know what I mean) to be able to get in and out of easily.
    It has a really nice Easterly aspect, gets the sun in the summer from late morning till sunset and is not overlooked. Can't wait to crack on with it.

    Looking good - spacious and useful with a lovely view down the garden.

    @Penny_Forthem, that looks so much better, a good place to relax in.

    Do the fences as and when.

    Well done. Very satisfying and rewarding. I am sure on a level you will miss your "chooks" but a new phase in your time with your garden. 
    A nice cup of coffee in the morning or a long cold drink in the evening and it will all be worth it. ENJOY.
