Its special Mark x,

I find that all sorts of things bring my parents to mind, the african violets on the windowsill, the daffs he planted for us when we moved here,and the tree he planted here for his mum amongst the many x

That's brilliant, Mark, and a very fitting way to remember your parents. Hope you have lots of lovely sunshine this year so you can make good use of the area for breakfast, lunches, teas and evening BBQs :)

Very nice, Mark. I like very much also the colour combination you have chosen. Very good.

I think it's great mark, and a lovely way of remembering your mam and dad when you sit there.
Mine have both gone a few years now, ... and today, 11th Jan, would have been my dad's birthday. It's nice to be able to remember them.
You are very talented to be able to make all these lovely things :o)
