The danger with pinterest and such like, is that you begin to dream really unrealistically.
In my head, next summer, my Dad and I are going to build this...

Mamas Kram is my total inspiration when it comes to all things garden related. I just LOVE her combo of German/Scandinavian style (no surprises there!)
I made a start on beautifying the garden last spring, and this is what came of it...
|Ava had a little tent that stayed up all summer long...|
|I started work on my trellis wall. I still have big plans for this...|
|A little herb garden... this has been SOOO well used!|
|A little bit of Holland... you've got to have a few continental touches!|
So that was last year... and this (below) is the result of my dangerous day-dreaming in the garden this week...
Yes, that does say playhouse, art station, bug hotel... you also are correct in reading veg patch and scarecrow. And yes, stone kids tic-tac-toe is also written there.
I blame Pinterest! (You can see my garden board here)
I'm not actually sure if any of this will come off the ground. I have a tendency sometimes to dream big and then need a little help with the getting there (which my poor Dad always bears the brunt of... but hey, if you're a DIY superman, what can you expect?? I inherit my optimistic dreaming big from him anyway, so he really can't complain!!)
Last night, I made my first little imprint on my plans for my developing trellis wall... and decided to make a sign. Again, Mama's Kram was my inspiration...

Just a little step at a time, and maybe, just maybe, by next summer my day-dreaming will have actually amounted to something!
Do any of you ever dream big?? Do you actually get your plans off the ground!?
