My Garden Shed


One of my favorite times of day

is right at dusk.

There is still enough light to

work in the garden,

but it is dark enough that I can turn on the little white lights

in my garden shed.



It is a humble place, but

as you know by now,

that is my

favorite kind.


I have posted reminders

to keep things simple while

I think,


work, pray.


It is also where I



and arrange things .


I realized recently I have a collection of

treasures in green.

I found many of these things in a crate

that was my mother’s.




Tomorrow afternoon I will be spending

the afternoon here.


There is work to do.


I am linking to

the following parties.

Attic Rat said...

I love your little garden shed. It makes me want to go out and plant something :D


Linda said...

This is so inspiring! It inspires me for the future, to make something wonderful out of our garden shed, the little house that was once my daughter's playhouse, but that she has since outgrown. Thanks for the beautiful ideas. I had forgotten to check your blog, until you stopped by mine tonight, and now I'm totally addicted and will be reading more regularly. Forgive my absence. It's difficult to keep up with everything.
Many blessings to you and yours,
