I just love to keep the blinds open, the view to the outdoors is just gorgeous. And you have to just love the faux french double doors. Beautiful!
My patio- which conveniently has a little gate; this is so convenient when the dogs have to be walked. The flowers are new, and I just planted some herbs recently too. :) You can't really tell in the photos, but there's a pretty good drop just past the doggie poo trash bin. It's neat, but I have to be extra careful never to let the dogs near it.
