My Potty Shed & Cheating Just a Little Bit

Earlier I did a post on my Potting shed, lovingly called my "Potty Shed" and then I remembered Fertilizer Friday was just around the corner so I thought I would just add to that post and add a picture of my garden. Now it doesn't look like much but here in the Panhandle of Nebraska it is just about where it should be. With the cold, wet spring we had a lot of it was washed away or just rotted so much of it was replanted. For the most part it is all pumpkins. I love, love, love to plant and harvest pumpkins but there are also tomatoes, peppers, peas, corn, watermelon and some winter squash. Please hop on over to Tootsies for Fertilizer Friday  (click on her name) and see all the wonderful yards and garden.

As for my Potty Shed.........
Can you see it - my potty shed? It is in the background of this photo. Everyone should have one, or so I think. I just love old buildings, old wood, old STUFF and when I told Mr. K. that I wanted an outhouse he just rolled his eyes and shook his head. But, by golly, he found me one and like the trooper that he is drug it home and set it up in the corner of the yard. I like to decorate it for the seasons but realized I only took a picture of it in the winter and then this summer. I call it my 'potty' shed because I originally was going to keep my old pots and potting supplies in it but it has become a place for the grannies to play; a place to display 'stuff' that I treasure but no one else does. Junk comes to mind to most people when I tell them about it. And it is a great place to store some of my collection of water cans.

Can you see it back behind my little grannie, who is playing in the middle of the flower bed? This is a photo before my snowball bush grew up around it.

So here is the old shed in the winter time. Mr. K. puts some lights on it and I decked out the old red bike with a wreath and some lights. Looks cold doesn't it?

Just another wintery shot of the snowy old Potty Shed.

My red bike, another treasure (junk) that someone threw away and Mr. K. knew I would like.

Oops, forgot to pull down the last of the Christmas lights before I took this, they are gone now.

An old plate and silver platter that were treasures found at some yard sale.

The inside of the potty shed at dusk, I love the old pieces of wood that the previous owner had used to hold it all together. I also have a welcome stepping stone hanging that a good friend gave me; an old shelf that my dear uncle (now deceased) made for me and a large stepping stone with my 'debbie dewberry' painting. Sorry Donna, that's what my kids call my painting. You might be able to see it peeking out of the corner in one of the photos above.
And then I just had to add this photo, I was taking these shots at sunset and it was so pretty I just had to include. Can you see the cross from the church, it is pretty small?

Thanks for stopping to look at the ole potty shed, I will remember to get some fall shots, that is when it is at it's best. Have a great day blogging buddies, it is to be hot and windy for the next couple of days so everyone try to stay cool.
