More Cottage Garden

What can I say...Mika just wanted to be part of this post today.....
this is the potting table I bought at the Country Folk Art Show...at the same time I bought the headboard bench.....a local man and his wife are retired and make beautiful little things and sell them for VERY reasonable prices......
it is small and doesn't take up much room on our patio.......

it just gives that part of our patio that cottage look I love.....

Mika wants me to make sure you see the brick she helped us clean....
Thank You Mika......

where is Mika......

Oh there she is....
I love the pickets and window he used on the potting table....

the little watering can and potting bowl came with the table....
I just thought this watering can was soooooo cute....

Our Foxgloves are just in the middle of blooming....
Hubby planted them 2 years ago...and they just keep reseeding....
such an old fashion plant...love it....

I let the Foxgloves go crazy this year.... no rhyme or reason just doing what every they want...they even seeded themselves in the wheel barrel this year...I kinda like for a change....

this is how we get to our Secret Garden from our back garden....this path is in between our storage shed and house....stepping stones and baby tears....just so sweet....

and into our Secret Garden...our garden is doing great this year...
I love sitting back here

all for now....Mika enjoyed her time with you today.....
I think she is posing.....
NO, I am sure she is posing.......she is such a ham !!!!!
Have a wonderful day...
Hugs,
Mo :-)

Your potting table is really neat. I like that it is made by someone in their shop or home...not massed produced. It fits perfect in your patio. I just love little Mika. She is so small and cuddly looking, makes you want to pick her up and hug her.
All your flowers in your yard are so pretty and the ferns too. You did a good job cleaning the brick. That had to be hard work. The path way to the secret garden is pretty neat. I know you must enjoy this time of year with that beautiful yard and patio to sit in.

Every inch of your home that you share with us is so visually wonderful including the spaces that Mika inhabits! Great posting, Mo!
