New Parasol

New Parasol

I got so fed up with being chased in doors by the heat, and it is HOT here most of the Summer...I went deliberately to the GC to get the biggest and most versatile Parasol I could the others just weren't coping...

Here she is all 3.5 metres lol...and for the first time I've sat and enjoyed my back garden in full sun without melting......:))

lol Karen...:))
It's made such a difference, and as the Sun moves round, you just step on a pedal, it releases the arm, and you can swing it into another position....
Bliss....

Lovely brolly, enjoy the garden while you can Crissue, it does make a difference having somewhere to sit out in the shade, I have different spots for different times of the day. lol.

Morning B....and everyone...:))

Spent most of the weekend enjoying the back garden for a nice change...The Parasol made such a difference, and gave a complete new seating area to relax in...
We get no respite from the Sun at the back at all, so really have to create our own...usually we get driven round to the front garden, nice and cool but not so private...or the alternative is to go indoors...no fun in that....lol...

Pleased it has worked out for you Crissue, sounds lovely and peaceful at the back, the front gardens are never quite so peaceful are they!

The ambiance is different...can't explain it...!!

The way we've got it set up on the patio...it's like a seperate room, with still a lovely view of the garden...
We had our meals out there B...and I didn't come in till after 8pm...it felt so good...and that's a first for me...:)))

Oh that is brilliant so glad you are enjoying it. It is getting dark very early now and I am not looking forward to the next 12 weeks, it is so dark and dismal in November, and I hate that month. Still will look forward to springtime and the bulbs coming up that will keep me going. Hope it stays nice for you to keep having lots more meals out there. B :o)

What a shopping spree you've had Crissue. I LOVE that parasol. You are so right about needing shade from the sun. Enjoy!

It's looks great Crissue...I could not sit in the garden in the shade. I'm a sun worshipper, my parasol is very Rarely out!
So pleased you are able to enjoy your garden more :)

Winter will be fast approaching B, so I'll enjoy this weather for as long as we can get it...Our Winters aren't so long as yours...but still dark and horribly cold...

Thanks Frybo...It's so important to stay safe from the UV rays...and makes it more comfortable...We've still sun but not the intensity...

Thanks Scottish... I know what you mean, when we were on the I.O.W. we had the sea breeze too..so our parasols didn't go up either...but here in France the temps get really high....too high for me at times...

Thanks Paul...glad you like it..wish I could work it though...:))) had to get OH to set it up for me, I can do the pedal, to spin it, and wind the top up, but the framework is too heavy for me to do :((( don't get old...

Thanks J...no not attached but matches...ok...:)))
it was a bargain I think...considering the pleasure we've had from it already...

Hi Pix...poor you again...with the rain...I thought it was going to rain here earlier no Sun...but it's finally arrived...

Thanks Lin....So pleased I got it, but alas the weathers changed now...:((( but we enjoyed it for the days we were able to use it...and it actually made me sit still for a change...:)))

Yes, when its hot its lovely to just sit and take a rest when you feel its necessary, and ring your bell to give the waiter your order (lol) :o))
