Neighbours’ Moving Patio Story

My dear neighbours recently moved and it was a very sad occasion – which surprised all of us considering we’ve been neighbours for nearly twenty years and never really been in each other’s pockets.  In fact I have only been in their house twice and they in mine only four times.  But we liked and respected each other greatly.  Whilst at a little ‘going away’ soiree, drinks and nibbles on the patio, I was able to fully take in what they were sad to be leaving behind.  Firstly they had a gate through to wonderful countryside – fields and foot paths, ideal for dog walking.  They also had a lovely arbour in the garden, over the magnificent lawn.  This arbour had various plants climbing up each support leg, together with outdoor lighting.  In the centre of the structure was a fabulous lighting cluster which made outdoor entertaining so much more sophisticated.
