The Sunflower House

Perhaps the greatest joy we've gleaned from creating The Storybook Home Journal is the many friends we've met along the way.  One such kindred spirit is Janet, a bright, amazing, and beautiful mother of five, who recently contributed to The Veranda in our Beatrix issue, as well as The Veranda in our winter jaunt with Susan Coolidge's What Katy Did Next.

This morning she sent us word that she planted up her own real-life version of the "Sunflower House" garden plan we presented in The Boxcar Children issue in early summer 2005.  We were so delighted with it, we simply had to share.
