Appreciating my surroundings is something I’ve always been taught to do. Sometimes I like to take a drive around the country just to look and see what has popped up around me. Occasionally, I’ll see clusters of new homes being built or even new shopping centers. The Boca Raton Architects have really produced some lovely buildings.
Driving through new neighborhoods and looking at the new homes gives me ideas of ways to add special touches to my home. Sometimes I might see some neat landscaping out front. Other times, my eye might be caught by large arch windows. Most recently, I was excited by a quaint little breeze way at the entrance to a home. It was a about a ten foot arch with lattice work. Hanging from the lattice was ivy and some beautiful pink and purple flowers.
I wish I had a grand entrance at the front of my home for something like this. The lattice work was breath taking. I suppose I could always add something similar to the backyard and patio, but I really thought it was stunning in the front yard.
With the weather getting warmer, outdoor water activities are lots of fun. Right now we generally visit a local community pool, but I’m thinking about other ideas. I’m not sure if having a pool of our own is really what I want but, I did take a look around to see what our options are. One website that I found that has a bunch of options for pools is doheny.com.
Doheny has a few different above ground pools to take into consideration. I was surprised to see quick pools not just in circles, but also in rectangles. All my life I’ve only seen above ground pools in big giant circles. They have eight different sizes to choose from in the quick pools section. They even throw in a free volley ball set when you buy certain sizes. If that’s not incentive enough to buy maybe the four payment plan will persuade me.
The addition of a pool to our backyard will really make the warmer seasons all the more enjoyable. A swimming pool water slide could be an nice piece to add to the pool too! Lady Bug would really have a blast sliding into the pool with her friends. If we want to get a slide though we have to make the commitment to an in-ground pool. Maybe I’ll just start her off with some diving sticks and pool noodles if we get an above ground pool. Either way, I know we’ll be happy.
