Right up the street from Storybook Cottage is a gorgeous garden.
I walk past this enchanting space a few times a week while walking the dogs.
This past Friday, on Earth Day no less, I made my way up the front walk.
I rang the doorbell, introduced myself and asked my green thumbed neighbors if I could take a few pictures and if they could offer me a few great gardening tips.
S.R., the resident gardener, was happy to oblige.
At every turn there is something sweet to see.
Darling vignettes hold abundant blooms.
The house sits on a corner lot providing ample gardening opportunities.
The side yards are just as charming.
Here a rose bush is propped up by an old metal headboard.
In the backyard the loveliness continues.
A good portion of the yard contains a lovely pool.
A happy corner.
I asked “How much for the WHOLE yard?” Alas my neighbors decided not to sell. :)
The multiple layers of texture and color just made me feel peaceful and happy.
A sweet seat.
A happy arrangement.
The out of the box ideas were so inspiring.
My favorite might have been this old ice cream parlor chair turned floral shelf.
I hope you have enjoyed S.R. and Lynn’s lovely garden.
How does your garden grow?
