My Little Tree House "Sweet Repose"

Home Sweet Home! Here is my little cottage tree house, which I gave the name of "Sweet Repose" when I moved in twenty years ago. Where did that time go? It is nestled in the trees and set into a hill. I go up stairs to get to my front door and walk out to a brick courtyard in the back. It has just the right amount of yard to garden with, which I have filled with perrenials over the years. I like to do container gardening with annuals and hanging baskets all around. Added in are birdhouses, which all have been occupied the past few Spirngs. I love listening to the sounds of the birds....so happy. I wanted to share my small piece of heaven on earth.

Oh Susie it is an adorable house, it looks so quiet and peaceful. Any chance of getting a peek at your brick work? I have to go up a set of stairs to get to mine too although I find it a little more challenging on some day to get up them :) hugs sassy gail
