John and Betsy’s Secret Garden in Plainfield Illinois is perfect for outdoor living! If you need me, I'll be in the tree house coloring with crayons. 

"Back in January I sent some photos of our garden. I had a couple of projects I was doing over the winter and they are now finished. We have added a cooking/dining area and a tree house for Grandkids. If anyone wants to see more pictures I have a lot on my web site Enjoy!"
