Since this is my first post of 2012 I must start out by saying Happy New Year to the BluLabel Bungalow Family! The year is so young I thought it would be appropriate to share images from two beautiful children’s gardens I recently visited. From my experience children’s gardens are never boring, have some of the most interesting features, and are always a source of inspiration.
