Looks like someone has been busy decorating in the "Path Garden" again. Hubby found these last Saturday. He hung two of the bird houses in trees, put the smallest on a pole back in the garden, and placed the shells back where they were left. He also found one flat painted rock with glitter near the chair and bench. Some little one signed the guest book, "Thank you for making My Secret Garden, I love it." Don't you just love it? I do.

I have seen this garden. It is so beautiful. Very peaceful. Thank you for your love and time spent doing this for others. Roberta
How pretty! When children are taught about gardens and nature and such, it is a gift for a lifetime.
Very Sweet. Any friend of Deeli's is a friend of mine.
I logged in just to tell you--SO NICE, joanie
I love it!
Wow, I'm so making this!
A fun craft and garden decor idea is to take old light bulbs and paint them. Glass paint is the best option, but you can use spray paint as well.
Seasonally Decorated Garden Wagon. This is my garden wagon. I had seen a similar one near a hardware store that was used to advertise the hardware store; it was smaller and used with seasonal items to advertisement purposes.
I love to use old primitive looking things that I find in my garden. This was found on the side of the road and I thought it looked like a flower, so I added it to my garden and throughout the summer, I started placing little flowers around it.
Garden picks to stick in your plants and flowers that are planted in pots. Watch them seem to fly when the wind blows.

Oh how wonderful and cute. This idea is a keeper.
My husband and I thought we would make gardening more fun by having a Wizard of Oz theme. Our favorite is the tin man, made with various "junk" from around the house like an old teakettle, trash can and funnel. This year we are planning an Alice in Wonderland Theme.
Make a mushroom cap out of concrete poured into a small plastic bowl, dried and cover it will broken plate "tiles" and grout! Pour concrete into a plastic ice tea cup and make the stem. Let dry, remove plastic cup, seal with glue and water, cover with tiles.
Make a great addition to your patio or front porch with this decorated planting pot! I used a regular black color plastic pot, attached a variety of buttons around the top with a hot glue-gun for a neat way to add color to the pot.
I am doing my patio with red, white, and blue. I am making a stencil from cardboard out of stars and spray painting my stepping stones in the appropriate colors. I think it adds a little bit of America to my back yard.
In the dollar store there are foot high thin wrought iron plant holders, (to lean plants on) some have wire flowers on them, instead of putting them in a flower pot, I made small fences in my garden with them.
Remember those garden decorations from a few years ago of a lady bending over, showing lacy bloomers? I'm looking for a free pattern or at least a picture of one.
This is not the Lacy Bloomers Sign that you are looking for, but a lady's backside in a flowered dress. If you go to http://www.thewinfieldcollection.com/ and type in the search window "Backside Lady", you will find the lady I have described above.
