We always notice that there is always something missing in the backyard. We have our flower garden and our wonderful little vegetable garden that between the rabbits and the chipmunks even with the fencing, sometimes they find a way to get into it. Sitting outback one day with friends one mentioned that they had a nice fire pit like we used to have it in my parents when we were growing up. So we decided to look into the different styles at http://www.firepits.com. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks we'll decide.
