A Peter Rabbit Garden

I love this whimsical garden. I enjoyed Peter Rabbit and other Beatrix Potter stories as a child (and still do) -- and the illustrations are wonderful. So the idea of having a small cottage garden, complete with a child-sized garden shed was appealing, and the reality has been even more fun. It changes seasonally; right now the zinnias are stars.

The sweet bright blue chair is a kid-magnet. Shortly before I took this picture, a delightful tow-headed toddler was insistent about clambering up to sit on it. It'll be fun to do our Peter Rabbit Salad Garden program next weekend!

  1. I love this garden. It's a butterfly magnet, but fundamentally so nice for kids.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
