Our Little Wonderland
I love to garden! I can't resist planting up every sqaure inch of earth I get my hands on, but it was equally important to me that the yard belong very much to our children as well. I wanted the kids' areas to be part of the gardens, and the gardens to be part of the kids areas. Our goal was to create our own little Wonderland that our entire family could get lost in and enjoy. The gardens are all organic, ornamentals and edibles are all planted together. I like the natural, wild style of the garden, I think it adds to the whimsical character and keeps it all un-fussy and kid tough. This has been a labor of love that has evolved over ten years, making use of recyled materials, my husbands mad carpentry skills, and the collaborative imaginations of our entire family.
