Xeric and stylish gardening in San Antonio, Texas

I learned 2 things today…

240D POWER!#1 – Never underestimate the power of the 240D!!!!!!!  Now at 33 years of age, my 240D is better than ever with roof racks and a new safari basket.  There she is with enough wood for 2 picnic tables, plus two  8′  4 by 6 posts, and 240 pounds of cement mix in the trunk.  Seriously. Picnic table time#2 – Picnic tables are the bomb!  My Daddy’O and I built 2 today.  Instant seating for 12 plus.  I am utilitarian…I like things that work and work well.  stainedI think they look great stained…stylish even?  What do you think?  I have decided everyone needs at least one picnic table in their backyard.So useful!And you can set them up so many different ways.  This year my focus is a LIVEABLE backyard space for us AND our children and guests.  I look forward to showing y’all where these are going to live…stay tuned.

Oh …and thanks dad! xo

  1. Very cool, you are making good use of the great weather we’re having. That’s one tough vehicle and holds as much as a truck.

    • I sure am – isn’t it beautiful out? We camped last weekend with my parents too – they (visiting from Canada) are soooooooooooo loving this weather! My little diesel…is a TANK! -xericstyle

  2. Dang! good work. those things are a beauties. I agree with picnic tables being epic. I can see those coming in handy for those warm sunny evenings y’all get down there. The thought of living in the outdoors just speaks to my heart.

    • Speaks to me too…I need to get cracking with the backyard – this IS the year for a comfortable backyard! -xericstyle oh and P.S. YES …..EPIC! ;)

  3. Your energy always amazes me! Eating outside is one of the real pleasures of life, may you have the weather you need to be able to enjoy your tables. I imagine that in summer you’ll need some shade, I foresee another project coming on. Christina

    • It sure is a pleasure, you are right. You are also correct about another project….ha! Always another project, eh?! – xericstyle

  4. I’m impressed! First, with that car – great job getting all that on there! And secondly, with your skills! I love the picnic tables!!! I hadn’t thought of one of these – but you are right – everyone needs at least one and I think I just decided I need one, too! :)
