Lead down the garden path.....

Just outside my sister Kae's kitchen window is a small
sliver of side yard that, for most of the years she has
lived there, was the designated "Sweet Pea" area.

Well, one thing lead to another....

and a fountain...

and a trellis....
a darling bistro set....

plus some other goodies...

a few more flowers...

an untamed beast...

and she now has the most charming English-y garden you could imagine!

And the view from her kitchen window isn't so bad either!


  1. Love that little space, I think some of my favourite spots in a garden are little alcoves. The beast is the twin to our beast, does this beast rule the home as ours does??
    Beautiful photos

  2. Oh, it is absolutely lovely. What a charming place to sit back, relax and enjoy life.

    Thank you for sharing it with us.

  3. What a beautiful backyard!

    I just don't know about that wild beast though! Scary. LOL

    Spring is such a lovely time to spend outside. I'm sure you and your sisters will have hours outside together laughing and talking and making memories. Nothing like sisters. I have two myself.


  4. What a lovely yard! Just wanted to wish you a wonderful Mother's Day sweetie!
