Mary's Back Yard Garden Video

mary2010(9 FL)December 27, 2010

Was posting this to my Garden Whimsies website and thought I'd share it with my GJ friends. I'm a local celebrity (haha) only to family members who watched the show.

A local TV station started a new weekly gardening segment this past summer and my garden was the first chosen. Hope you enjoy viewing.

Thanks friends. The potting shed almost didn't happen. It was our children's play set (including sliding board and swings). When the kids had outgrown it and before I was actively gardening I considered taking it down. I'm so glad I didn't as it makes a great potting shed. The potting table top is actually part of the original sliding board. Now it's one of my favorite features in the garden. So glad it was "repurposed".

Great backyard, you are really making me yearn for Spring. I love the play center turned potting shed, it's wonderful. That plate border idea is tucked away on my to do list too.

I would love to walk through your backyard. It looks like the perfect spot to stop and enjoy nature for awhile. You have so many interesting touches. The plate border is really outstanding. Gives me an idea for my collections of plates that I have in my storeroom waiting for me to repurpose them. Thanks for being such an awesome representative of all us garden junkers. Your garden is an outstanding example.

Thanks SOOO much friends. But I have to tell you that you all were MY inspiration for starting a business making totems. Everyone was so encouraging and generous with their knowledge. I wasn't even sure I had a creative talent until I started making totems. And I especially didn't know if others would like my work. I can't thank you enough for your support. I'm so excited about 2011 and the wonderful possibilities that exist. For anyone who hasn't visited my website and Facebook page, I'll provide links to those sites. Please "fan" me on Facebook so we can stay in touch. My best to everyone!
