This first photo is the garden loom. Bella decorated it up with clippings from my plants and lots of ribbons that she believes the birds take to weave into their nests

Eden - what a magical garden for the kids! That will certainly provide memories to last their lifetimes. My maternal grandparents' garden is a definite influence on mine and your garden will influence theirs too I'm sure.

Thanks everyone. I try not to take my garden or my gardening too seriously these days. It supposed to be about fun, right? Being in my garden makes me really happy these days. I could use a higher fence though :)

But you do take it "seriously," Eden - in that if you just look to see what all projects you've done this garden season alone - it's truly amazing in retrospect.... what a magical place; I agree w/ Woody - you likely will have inspired several future gardeners. Just fantastical.... I think I'm most taken by the fairy invasion of your property.
