Junk Garden

I've been working in my flower garden at the cottage all week.... and now that I'm back home I'm reflecting on why I love being at the cottage...
• lax rules... i.e., "oops, drilled a hole wrong... no problem, it's a cottage!" or "Darn, spilled on the sofa.... no worries, it's a cottage!"
• makeup not required
• unscheduled meals... eat when you're hungry
• computer-free
• the silence
• the birds
• the push mower
• reading
• listening to the water while laying in bed
• the smallness of the cottage

Here's a pict. of my funny little garden fountain. I got an old wash tub and watering can at the flea market last weekend... and voila!

LOVE it! what a great idea! I know how you feel - our place is actually our cottage too so it's the best of both worlds. I always wanted my home to have a dock. : )
