I heard voices in the garden and opened the gate to find a little girl signing my guest book. She had brought the painting to the garden with her dad. She had set it on the ground near a big rock. Painting in Secret Garden

The Dad said her older sister had asked them to bring her painting to "the secret garden" for her. I was very touched that a child would paint a picture for the garden and told them we would put a frame on it and hang it for everyone to see. Chair in Secret Garden

One day I'll have to let you take a peek at the nice things people say in the guest book.

garden pathI have 3 teenagers and a 9 year old. We went rock "hunting" and searched all over for free wood chips. Filled the truck load after load and layed the chips down on top of plastic. And made this garden path on the side of our home. We trimmed some trees and made trellises. The only thing we purchased for the garden path was a birdbath I got for Mother's Day and some flats of flowers...we love it. The best compliment I received was "Dang Tracey, I feel like I should be paying to walk on your path".

With winter being so bad in many parts of the country now I hope everyone will enjoy the roses that we have blooming in the yard. Some of them are as big as my hand.

Peach colored rose, mix of pink and pale yellow.

A lady from another neighborhood was walking her granddaughter through the garden. She said her daughter lives in our area and she babysits every week for her. She comes down the garden path a lot ...

A nice person asked me to send these two pictures in so people could see the difference from our side of the path and the other side of the green belt. This path runs through from our block to the school.

Another surprise tucked away in the garden today. These look to be wooden dolls, but may be resin. I picked up one and the far hand is missing. So I sat it back and will go look tomorrow and glue them down where they were left, on the ladder.

A friend donated this plant. I don't know the name, she collects succulents and has many. She doesn't know the names of all of them yet. But the flowers are so pretty and there were 6-8 on the one plant this year. Now they are growing so fast and I will move more of them around in The Path Garden and will have to plant some in pots for the "plant give away" next spring. I pray that we'll get rain this year. The Path Garden isn't doing well with out it.

When it comes to rose buds, I love the clear colors and so pure, as this white one from the Path Garden. Here is another Angel Face, full opened. Enjoy each in their own beauty.

Some one has left garden art at the Path garden and at our gate. One day we had this angel at the gate, and another that was left with a broken head that had been fixed and a leg in pieces left on a tree stump.

Jupiter's Beard

Jupiter's Beard is a good cut flower. It self seeds. They need little water and is surviving in poor clay soil here on the "Path Garden". It could be a weed soon. LOL

Because our yard is 2 steps down from "The Path Garden" and we had to pile dirt (sand bags) up to keep the rain from flooding the back yard. So we just built the planting area like a raised bed.

This is the start of my new walkway.The concrete squares will be staggered. I'd like to plant tiny flowers or something that has runners with some color where the new soil will be. Any suggestions? Izzy Bella (former Keeper's new puppy entry) loves to be outside and into everything.

I want to thank you for your suggestions.I'm slow going but all good things come to those who wait...Right?:-). Izzy,my 5 month old fur baby loves to garden along with me but she's got things backwards. I plant and she comes from behind and digs them up so she's being taught in reverse now.

I would love to someday have a beautiful garden with walkways, water features, and more. I was wondering if I could 1/2 bury recycled tin cans to use as planters as well as a garden path border. My question is would they last. I don't want something that will disintegrate over the course of 2-5 years. I want something that will last and that I won't have to change out too often and end up hurting my plants.

Thanks for any info you can give me.

Tin cans will rust and disintegrate. They will leave debris in the garden and you can cut your hands on it. Plastic or aluminum won't rust and won't disintegrate. You could even cut the bottoms off and once the plants have a good root system pull the plastic container out of the ground, gently take the plant out of the pot and pop it into the hole that it came out of.

Here is the newest angel left in The Path Garden. Once again someone has left a surprise in the garden. Always a treat to find treasures to delight visitors as they stroll through the garden.
