We featured a few photos of Bonnie Pancoast’s gardens a few weeks ago–a colorful front garden and her very cool labyrinth. Today she’s sharing her garden shed, which is just as great! Bonnie says, “This is the former smokehouse, now potting shed, in my garden. When we moved into our home in 2004 there were no gardens or stonework around the potting shed. First the brick walkway to the barn was installed.  Next the patio block raised beds were added.  All the bricks and blocks were brought from our former home.  Last we added the crushed stone.  In November two dwarf fruit trees were planted in the kitchen garden.  In the spring we are planning to remove the grass on the left side of the brick walkway and plant berry bushes.” Amazing, Bonnie! You’re so lucky to have such a great potting shed! Thanks for sharing.

    As I'm viewing these photos of Bonnie's, I realize I have a big smile on my face...I'm sharing the delight she must feel over a job so well done. It's so satisfying to be part of an ongoing property transformation. Of course, it goes without saying (ha, but I will anyway), that I love, love, love that she has bedecked her adorable potting shed in Christmas finery.

    What a beautiful over-all effect. I looked back at the earlier pictures to specifically look at the labrynth. Any suggestions about making one?

    Just beautiful....I want to work in my garden today...If the temps. were higher I would. I will spend my late afternoon tea time looking at these photos again. Oh for spring to come.

    For anyone interested in creating a labyrinth please go to my blog and post a comment on the labyrinth page and I will answer your questions there! Begin first by thinking of the size, minimum of a 32 foot diameter and the type of material you would like to use to create the labyrinth.
