Today's photos are from Avis Veseley in southern Maryland. She says, "This is a picture taken from our little "Wee House" where we nap, play with grandchildren, sort seeds and plan gardens. When resting on the couch I love to look out onto the curving garden path that leads to the rustic arbor.  This picture was taken last summer. We live in southern Maryland near the Chesapeake Bay on a very wooded lot which I have been working to tame a bit. I love being outside working the earth even on these warm winter days and looking forward to spring.
     As for the Wee House, I am a military wife and had been carrying around old stained glass windows purchased in England 30 years ago and standing them inside our windows for privacy instead of curtains. When the moving life was over, I put one of the windows in our Wee House. After we renovated our house we had 4 boxes of hardwood flooring left over, so that went in along with some inexpensive bead board, a crazy green couch which turns into a bed, and a wonderful old sconce that was salvage. It's my quiet place and is also becoming a place our granddaughter loves to color and cuddle." So great, Avis. That view is wonderful. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Send me pics of YOUR garden hang-out spots, everyone! I think they're fascinating, and sort of like the "kitchen" of the garden, if you catch my drift. It's where people congregate, talk, and relax, and maybe even get a little work done. Email me at
