Make Mine Natural


A few times a year I bring out my wreath making skills.

A crate filled with dried Rose Hips from last autumn became this years decorations.

Wire small bundles of dried material onto a wire wreath frame.

Keep the bundles close together and wrap with a continuous wire spool.

Rabbit Run Cottage

What color is your potting shed?

I have been asked to share the color used on Rabbit Run Cottage from several gardeners

in the past few weeks.

Rabbit Run Cottage

Though the trim color has changed a few times since Rabbit Run Cottage was built,

the building color has remained the same color.

The building is sided with cedar and stained with Cabot solid finish stain–color Sycamore.

This stain has held up incredibly well, does not fade!

In 10 years the little garden shed has only been stained twice.

It’s a color I have never tired of, it blends nicely in the garden.

It’s a color that looks nice with every season of the garden.


2014 was a busy year for the garden.
2014 was a busy year for the garden.

The garden was shared with many this past year.

Country Gardens magazine chose the little greenhouse and Rabbit Run Cottage to grace it’s cover in January,

and two garden tours brought hundreds of visitors to the garden this summer.

So grateful for all of these opportunities that this little spot on earth has provided.

To all of you who stop by Down To Earth Digs, and peek over the garden fence, thank you.

Soon another garden season will began in the little greenhouse.

I can’t wait to get started and tell you all about it.

Happy New Year, Stacey
