    What an inviting place, wonderful capture Jade! I can imagine to sit there for a spell, with a bottle of beer of course ;)

  • Against a south wall, it catches the morning sun. Wonderful on chilly mornings for coffee. Stepping stones protect your toes from morning dew. ☺ Beer OK…might make it more useful in summer!
