Stuff I built - a patio update

This is the patio right after they took the forms off. It looks a lot better now that it has a couple chairs, a bench, another bench, and stuff. Kinda looks like 1/4 of Mickey's head, upside down, doesn't it?

So here are a couple pics of the stuff I've built and put on the patio. First is a cedar trellis, on which I have hung some tiki lights (not pictured). Sort of a screen to section off the AC and firewood area.

Also, I built a cedar planter box/bench combo, which now holds some herbs (also not pictured). Thanks for the herbs, sis!

There's lots of landscaping left to do around the patio - mainly adding dirt, mulch, maybe plants. I still need to complete the boulder wall project in front, so landscaping in back will likely come later. And I keep putting off scraping and painting the house, mostly because I just don't want to do it. I mean who would?
