Island on an Island . . .

In our kitchen is an island with a granite counter that resembles a riverbed, and on this island is another small island.  This small 'island' is a collection of vases with flowers from the yard, along with a growing menagerie of turtles, frogs, a goat,  a wooden grandmother and grandfather, and stones from the lake.

This second island began with a single vase and flower.  My granddaughter added 'dinosaur eggs' (made from clay); I added a few more vases; my husband added the wooden figures; my grandchildren began adding one or two things each summer.  I love this island to bits.

  1. If I had to be stranded on a desert island, this one would be a blessing to have landed on.
