We have a lovely but postage stamp-sized garden chez Cafe Bebe. In it there are trees, bushes, shrubs, flowers, a teeny weeny pond and a plethora of children’s play things. My in-law’s garden is another wonder entirely. Our postage stamp-sized garden has garden envy over my in-law’s garden.
Today we spent the majority of the day basking in the glow of my in-law’s garden. They are so lucky to have the space they have. Acres of it. A green house, a garden patch, an inground pool, fruit trees, willow trees, a babbling brook. My in-laws also have a gorgeous conservatory from where they can view all the beauty in their garden.
