Almost Finished - Pool Update

Finally our pool is full. Hooray.
With school holidays and stuck at home with sick kids
I am heading out to paint the pergola.

I am really happy with the waterline tiles, they
shimmer in the sun and reflect on the water.

The pool water is still adjusting so will go a lovely
blue in a few days.

Once the pergola is painted the tile man will come back and
finish the tiling.  Also very happy with the sandstone.
Still lots of landscaping to do

We shopped around to find the biggest magnolia we could
Hopefully it doesn't take too long to grow up a bit.
We finally settled on Precious Silver Pearl for the fence.

Pebble crete is white with a blue and black speck.

Undercoated pergola.  Will have extra battens over the top
Will grow a vine, maybe Stephonotis?  
Then going to suspend a shade sale under the top.
A hedge of Murrayas across the fence line at the back 
to block out the afternoon western sun.

Bring on Summer, I know where I will be hanging out.

Have a great Friday
