This time the garden is really finished!

I made some gladiolus and daffodils to add color to this corner. I don't have the punch that Doreen used so I used my star punch to make the glad petals. Doreen's flowers are much more realistic. I was going for the illusion.
I sanded the chairs down and started over this morning. I'm happy with the soft white and the cushion fabric.
My friend Brenda made the flat of pepper plants and Tina made the compost bin. I added the vine growing up the side.
The bridge made by Gary was a little too new looking. I hated to do it but I sanded a path in the middle where it would naturally be worn down. I also added the small bushes and the vines. There are also some grasses growing near the stream now.

I don't know where I'll use this now that it's finished but come next winter it's going to make me smile every time I look at it. :-)
