The focal point of the garden is the little cottage. Purchased for her granddaughter and made by Amish builders, it was originally pink and featured shutters and hinges and other charming details. As her granddaughter grew older, Peggy repainted the cottage for her grandson. Just outside the front door grows a pink peony bush and purple clematis.
The flowers sign was bought at the Springfield Antiques Extravaganza in Ohio. The husband of one of the dealers made it using pieces of old tools for the letters. The “w” is made from the tines of a garden fork. The white cast-iron table is Victorian, and the chairs, which are extremely heavy, date from the 1800s.
