The Secret Garden

We will be having a wedding here this summer for my Niece, Laura.

This gives me a really good excuse to finally get "The Secret Garden" finished.

This is just the beginning I have work a little here and there for years but have never finished the project and it has become totally filled in with weeds. As you can see I have recruited some help (I bribed them with cash). Hey! whatever it takes.

We have tons of weeds to pull and dig. Then flowers to plant. The reason I named this spot the secret garden is because there is a path that goes through the scrub oak and comes out at the other end. When you go in it feels like you are in the forest. It is also near the swing set/play house and the trampoline where the kids play. I think it will make a great place to hide and pretend.

Thank YOU for coming by, Susan. I'm not a wonderful person, just very blessed to be surrounded by the things I love so much.

I can't imagine my life without my children, grandchildren, and animals (should mention husband too!).

As for driving, it is great fun. Tango was so easy to teach and he loves it too!

Come back again often. It's nice to meet you too. Jan
