K.I.S.S. (Bobbi’s Grandchildren's Grotto )

While at the Garden Gallery Show and Sale last month I fell in love with this feature in Bobbi’s garden.

I’ll try to keep this short to qualify for Keep it Short Saturday. Don’t hold me to it though, k?

My friend Linda and I had a ball going through this cave of bushes.

There were 3 different entrances/exits.

The center point was high enough for me to stand up without ducking.

I spent a good deal of time in here, wishing I were one of Bobbi’s grandchildren.

Seriously, this was the coolest garden feature I have ever seen.  It captured my imagination and made me wish to be a kid again with all my heart. 

Can’t you just picture hot summer days spent hidden in here with a good book and a glass of lemonade?  (and maybe a pillow)

I so want one of these for myself!
