THE GARDEN

So it has begun, the building of my garden.  This is something I have looked forward to most of my adult life.  And I finally have the space and property to do so.  The "kids" that live here in the cottage had a simple little makeshift kind of space they had been using.  It was the quaintest little thing...I loved it.  However, the sides were falling down and the deer netting was tangled and the silvia was taking over.  So I thought I would just go in and beef it up a bit...well, so much for that idea.  
The next thing you know I am completely remaking the garden, in both structure and dimension.  Ray brought in an old shed he had to become part of the wall and is planning on covering the siding with wood....so here are some photos to show you the process.  
Still got a ways to go...but LOVE doing it!  enjoy, xx juner
