We were in Michigan for 14 days. (I apologize to my Michigan blogger friends - we just had NO time to take extra excursions... boo...). Let's get together sometime, though!!
Anyway, the above photo is the top of the playhouse my son built last Fall. The 1x4" board around the top was the frame for soil. He'd planted wildflower seeds, but they didn't germinate. WE planted four petunia plants in the front... a little gaity. ha!
The playhouse is constructed from used lumber and painted at least twice. :-) The grandchildren and I had five different painting sessions. They painted as high as they could reach, and I painted the top of the building.
Mr. Shady built a loft and ladder inside, as it's nice and tall. I KNOW they're enjoying it.
PS I have no idea what the pipe is... I don't remember noticing it until it appeared in the photo.
Btw: Please be watching for a post to soon appear that has NOTHING to do with gardening at all. It has ALL to do with Grandparent's Day in September. It also has ALL to do with a give-away!
