Each year, I put a mix of flowers into the urn on top of the fireplace. Many folks think it is an ancient chimney, but alas, it merely hold flowers. Hence, the Container Garden Chimney. As you will see, the herd of rabbits is increasing. ;-)

Thanks folks, I appreciate your nice comments.

My wife and I sat out in front of the fireplace tonight between rainstorms, and watched the robins nurse their 2nd family along, – flying in and out of the lilac tree behind us, and scolding us for sitting there. The nerve of us ! LOL

I really like the way you have created an outdoor sitting room in your garden. I can imagine how lovely it is for you to sit outside and see the birds and flowers all around you. Lovely!

This is a very attractive sitting area. I can imagine the fragrance of the flowers and the sound of the song birds as evening comes on. Very relaxing. As someone has pointed out, ‘classy’.

Looks wonderful jroot. You have such a beautiful garden to sit in and enjoy. The rabbits seem to like it too.
