|looks like my new fav building component - pallets, perhaps?|
Thinking, always, of new approaches in my "spaces" - my thoughts go to "The Bog Cabin". The landscape surrounding our new cabin is, for me, a true gift from nature. There is so much to discover, as it is so vastly different from our garden at home, both in size and composition. And there are built in elements from Mother Nature that I truly love - rock formations as I've never seen, textures and colors so different from the seashore landscape at home, and unusual (for me, anyway) ferns and ground covers, and lots of bird species whose voices are unfamiliar to me. I feel like a kid in a new playground!
So, play I will ! There are challenges - the black flies have had their way with me, feasting on my legs, arms and ears as though I were a new food source. I learned very quickly how to dress to play in the garden and when the best times are to be outside. The locals tell us you get used to them (never, I say!) and they do pass (thank goodness!).
|As every playground has its toys, so must I....|

|one of Mother Nature's gifts - so sweet!|
|branch holds the door up, window added to fill in the space - not bad, huh?|
|did a little antiquing - see what I found?|
The hummingbirds have found the feeder I put in the tree, and the phoebes don't seem to mind my invading their space - ah! life is good in my new artful garden .... now, if I could just control the bugs.......
