another view.....

this is another view of the outhouse.......................our huge propane tank behind......i hid it with a piece of fencing i already had..................................there is a small outhouse to the left (a couple of boys in our youth group made me years ago) where the clothesline stretches............mr. prairie blue bought me the old copper washer a few years ago.......................i carried extra stones we had to the back of it to make a potting area....(which i never use for potting, but it looks cute, when it is cleaned up!).....................i planted iris and lilys on the other side for now......................................so all i really need is to figure out the front.......................i love the fire pit....but with our children grown, we don't use it as much.........i need to move it too, because it is very close to the outhouse.................................i think i need to start with a single path, split it into two....and plant a little in between........how does that sound?................i am open for ideas! ..................................................................................i love mr prairie blue & i am blessed!

What a great idea - you wouldn't even know the tank is back there! Looks great and your ideas sound fine - can't wait to see it when when you are finished.

It looks fantastic !Your ideas sound wonderful to me ! I think a small climbing rose would look beautiful planted near by especially if you could put up a small section of split rail fencing for it to climb on.Can't wait to see more pics !Jen

Love the forking path idea - it will be the finishing touch to an already wonderful area....The washtub and clothesline with the long johns hanging are just too dang cute...LOVE it!! (My DH wasn't at all amused though when I told him we needed to hunt down an old outhouse.....) ;o) Have a great weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I love the outhouse and the longjohns just adds the perfect touch. Just the perfect setting. Sounds like a good garden plan to me, can't wait to see how it turns out, you are so gifted. Have a great weekend. Vicky

I wish someone would offer me an old outhouse!! (How many people would say that?!) It is wonderful, and I love what you have done with it. Love the idea for the path being split with a garden in between -- sounds perfect!
Have a happy weekend!
