Great Garden Ideas - #4 of my Facebook Postings

I realize that many people do not use Facebook - so I try to remember to share photos here that I post daily on 'Serenity in the Garden blog' on Facebook.

I do it to gladden someone's day  and to share my marvel at people' s creativity and Nature's beauty.
