Thanks Hiltiki ,the trip to London was worth it as I bagged a couple of Mini Tikis for behind the bar and one to sit in the RHS in the Bamboo and Mint.I also bought some Cogan grass thatch for the roof to soften the ugly edges on the Nippa thatch which we dont really like , when it stops raining we'll put some up and decide whether or not to get rid of the Nippa. Also lobster pots which I will use as overhead lights , pics to follow.
Regards,

Mark.

Its been a while but a few additions have been made - the Cogan grass on the front to soften the edges which I couldn't manage with the Nippa thatch .



I found a couple of Lobster pots and bought some LED bulbs which you hang from a string and pull to operate and painted them green with glass paint , not a massive amount of light but a nice glow



And finally got a copy of Smugglers Cove which we are drinking our way through in no particular order , last night it was Saturns,Tiki bowls and then Mai Tais before we got our swerve on and it was time go.




Its been a wonderful summer with friends visiting and some lovely long evenings,the rewards of having your own bar are too numerous to mention but anyone thinking about it , just go ahead and do it , you won't regret it , I haven't.
Cheers,

Mark.

Greetings again from the UK , summers here and its time for refinement.The bar wintered well apart from the cogan grass that I applied last summer so it had to go and we will have to live with the Nippa thatch for now.

We finally arrived at a name after much deliberation a friend carved me these Hibiscus flowers which I painted



I then stuck them on to the sign and TIKI WONDERLAND was born





The chair is a temporary home and this weekend it will get fixed to the cherry tree in the foreground .

We acquired a lobster pot for the bottom of the ever increasing Bamboo




And I left my OCD at the door and built a higgledy piggledy wall



We have also planted some giant grasses in front of the wall which will be about 6 feet tall hopefully next year.



the whole garden has matured this year and will only look better and better and we are happy to sit there every night and gawp at what we have done.

Also some red cherry lights around the tree and in the bushes to the right of the bar,plus some bamboo candle holders that sit in the gravel with tea lights in to guide guests back to the rest rooms.









Anyone finds themselves in the west of England pop in for a sundowner.

Regards - Mark.

love your little yard and tiki space! outstanding! it must be tough being in a temp zone thats not friendly to so many tropical plants and the cost and difficulty it must be finding anything tiki in the UK! how do your neighbors enjoy your bar? i know from being there back in 2000, you all have to have short fences due to the lack of sun you all get, and anything that obstructs that may be a problem!? overall, a really neat space and bar, really enjoyed your lighted pathway! my fav part of any home tiki project is seeing other people reactions who aren't expecting it! love to see what u do next!!!
cheers
