Ooooooh, it's so beautiful!

It's amazing to see how that space has been transformed over the last couple of months.

It's stunning,Ina. I remember the pics when you and kids were just starting out. You all have created living art. -- Sparkle Plenty

Ina, this is beautiful!
Is that straw mulch? And if so, where did you get it? I desperately need some mulch so poor J can stop hand-weeding the veggies! Though he says he finds it relaxing...
