squash and melon harvest by rochelle greayer at www.pithandvigor.com

Daily Garden: Inviting Tiny Garden

Image from Living etc. Today’s daily garden reminds me of two things….mirrors can work magic in the garden and window boxes don’t always have to be below the window.   This mirror make it seem like this tiny garden opens on to something bigger and it invites you in, and the window boxes above the wall…
