Welcome to my blog. Here I have tried to capture the adventures of our little family and the trials and tribulations of our never ending garden project(s). Take a look around and leave a comment if you wish. Thanks for stopping by. Jer.

Dream Garden

This is a garden from the UK that won a national garden competition in 2007. This is my kind of backyard!
The garden is called Four Seasons and the owners have set up a webpage with more info (see my links).
