My Perfect Patio

Last weekend we did our summer planting, which consists mostly of filling simple, pretty pots with brightly colored annuals on the front steps and back patio and praying I don't kill them by mid-season.  Every morning as I spend a few minutes watering the flowers, I imagine what my perfect backyard oasis would look like if I had unlimited funds and time to devote to it.

I'd start by adding a huge teak dining table where we could have fabulous summer dinner parties and family meals.  Around it I'd put these fun aluminum "Samantha" chairs found here.  They can be used outdoors and I love their bold colors and sleek, modern lines, the antithesis of my imaginary rustic teak table.

While we're at it, I'd like a fire pit, this one found here on Sunset Magazine's site.

Oh, and I'd also like this outdoor kitchen.  Is that too much to ask?

Nope! Not too much to ask. I can picture it!
