patio furniture

Having ordered patio furniture on Thursday for next-delivery, I went on the website on Friday to see if a rough delivery time was given. Although they hadn’t emailed me, and it showed they’d received the package, apparently due to unspecified problems it would now be delivered on Monday. This morning (Saturday) I got an email saying it was “out for delivery”, and indeed it turned up shortly after lunch. Hermes / Evri continue to surpass themselves in chaos!

However, although rather tough on my back, it was simple enough to assemble, and the smaller table does give more room on the patio.

Opened this morning – the first of the irises.

Mine seem to be rather behind most people’s – but they’re not in a “full sun” position: being next to the fence they don’t get sun until midday.

The patio table and chairs due for delivery yesterday didn’t turn up. It’s now shown as being due for delivery today (the driver is currently on the far side of Worcester, according to tracking). I’ve deferred the rose arch project yet again, as I want to do the furniture as soon as it arrives.
