What a great job you have done bringing some of the history and comfort of your family into your landscape. I remember playing in a shed at our lake house when I was a kid. It had been the outdoor biffy in the early 1900s when the house was just a cottage. But it was large like a playhouse and had windows that swung out. Wish I had hauled it away like you did! -Bennett Graham, N. Mpls.

Fantastic work. Reusing items is positive in so many ways. Creating beauty, living beauty to soften the world is a noble act. Great work Randy.

Then his garden would fit in perfectly as being over the top with all the rest of the surburnites.

I've seen the garden & dragged numerous friends to see it too. There's nothing suburban about it. It's just simply beautiful! It's the type of beauty that inspires & spreads. Seeing it makes the viewer want to race home and create his/her own little paradise. Clearly his vision was to be anything but ordinary. Great job Randy & thanks for graciously sharing what you've so lovingly created.

It cannot be suburban because it sounds interesting and vital. I want to see this garden. I am working towards the same type of garden and would love to compare notes and plans. I am not as ambitious....I seek help with the projects....but then.....I am older. I would love to see the garden and meet the gardener. I have a lot to learn.
