country garden - SFH adds: I had to pin this wonderful site on three different boards it is such a great example of a successful border, winning plant combinations, and Blue/Purple- crown jewels in the garden. - My Cottage Garden
Backyard Chalkboard - paint and mount an outdoor chalkboard on a boundary fence for a great activity for children. Less mess + the rain washes it away! Add some simple wooden shapes in a bucket so kids can trace around them & create masterpieces.
