Garden Party---Part 2

 

Welcome to garden two on our tour.
This lovely home was purchased 46
years ago, with no place for the
children to play, the backyard was
transformed by an 85 year old land-
scape expert some 40 years ago!
This gardener has worked on several
Kansas City gardens and our very
own Shawnee Mission Park.
This garden is mostly in the shade
so or course most of the plants are
shade lovers.

This is a picture heavy post as it is
my favorite garden on the tour.
Please don't let that deter you, I
think you will enjoy the pictures.


 

As you walk up the drive, you
are invited to sit and enjoy the
scenery. Such a cute sitting
area!




As you go down the sidewalk to
the front door you will find this
whimsical vinette. The fairy on
the tire swing just cracked me
up!

 

Love the birdcage. 



 

One fun way to hang a plant.


 

A different use for a iron basket.


 

A creative way to use a very small
area. The homeowner enjoys taking
window frames and putting mirrors
in them. She has them in several
places around the backyard.


 

So pretty!

 

Fun color scheme.


 

Loved the patio area. The table
and the rolling cart were set for
a garden lunch.
In the background of each picture
you can see how flower boxes
were used.


 

I want one of these carts!!!!!


 

A new use for a birdbath.


 

Shhh...you are now in the SECRET
GARDEN. This garden came about
when the homowners found out they
need to move their back fence.
She has made several fairy gardens
there, I took a lot of pictures but only
posted two--I think you can tell what
is going on.


 

Such fun!!!!!




At the end of the Secret Garden was
another mirrored window and a fun
birdbath.

I think the reason I enjoyed this
garden so much because it wasn't
stuffy.There was a lot of fun here!!

  8. Wonderful gardens! I actually have the same fairy garden furniture at my place. When my kids were little, we created fairy gardens. They loved them! Now my fairy garden is contained to a wide pot.
