Is it possible to have too much garden furniture?

One of lifes great, existentialist questions.

When we moved in together about 7½ years ago, we had an old door that we put up as a garden table, and then we dragged our kitchen chairs out on the porch.
Da vi flyttede sammen for snart 7½ år siden, havde vi en gammel dør på nogle bukke,
og så slæbte vi køkkenstolene ud på terrassen.

Some time along the way we got ourselves a bit of garden furniture. The white wooden Skagen-set, with an extra large table, a bench that sits 3 people and 4 chairs - we wanted to be able to sit down with all of our kids at once.


Later we got a small, cheap hardwood set, with 2 chairs and a 2-seat bench.

And then we have the red chairs, and I brought a deck chair into our relationship - one that I got for my 30th birthday.


So we have a lot of garden furniture. Specially now that our garden size has been seriously reduced. But today I think we managed to find a place for every chair.

We tidied, swept and weeded the terrace at the bottom of the garden, and then we switched the furniture around, so the white bench, table and 2 chairs is now on our wooden porch.


It is a bit of a puzzle to get it all placed, so it doesn't look like an attic for storing garden furniture :-) but I think we were succesfull!
