Right after returning from our dreamy vacation, Mike and I decided finally tackle our “outdoor project”. We’ve been meaning to add a few things to our rooftop deck this past year, in order to turn it into our own little tropical paradise. Well, off to the garden center we were – without a clue about gardening and the likes … boy, that was one exhausting afternoon!! We felt so lost and had no idea what plants would work with the weather conditions in Vienna, but after about 2 hours we finally ended up deciding on 2 palm trees, roses (obviously my choice) and some cool grasses to sway in the wind. Along with that we have a little fire place, Mike ordered an amazing outdoor shower, we finally had our outdoor sound system installed & last weekend I got the cutest watering can! There still is a bit of work to be done (ie. figuring out a shade solution, as the wind is simply too strong up there for an umbrella) but it is starting to feel real cozy up there and I wanted to share a few first impressions. More to come later this summer, I promise!
