Garden Party---5



Good Evening, hope everyone
is having a wonderful week!

We are here at the fifth garden
on the tour. This is a heavy pic
post and I think you will under-
stand why. If you are interested
in structural/architectural
elements this is the garden for
you.

WELCOME! The tour begins on
the south side of the house in
front of the garages.


 

In the side yard, we see an old
ladder as a plant stand.


 

A sitting area on a side porch.


 

A multiple plant stand in front the
pool fence. I need one of these!


 

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the
use of the sewing table as
a plant stand.


 

Look closely, this is a HAND
PAINTED tablecloth! The
plants show different stages
of blooming. It a vinyl material
with a hole in the middle for
the umbrella. If I remember
correctly, the homeowner did
the painting. WOW!


 

What a great area right outside of the
backdoor! Another sewing table, a
great plant stand and don't you just
love the barber pole?!


 

Our friend here is dressed
for a garden party, she is
sitting to the right of that
fab table.


 

These fascinate me. I may
plnat a version of the Allium.
So fun.


 

When guests step off the deck
and go to the left they will find
this quiet place to take a break.


 

A large ceramic leaf with some
friends.


 

Moving around the towards the
west side of the yard, we find
another cozy spot for a rest.


 

WAY TOO FUNNY!!!!!


 

This house is situated so that
the south side faces one street
and the west side faces another.
This is a side porch to the front
porch. The front door is off to the
left of the chair.


 

This combo is just to the left of the
chair we just saw...teapots and a
great big iron cauldron greet
arriving guests




More lovelies to greet guests.


A little bit about this garden.
It borders a golf course, so
you see a lot of greenery with
pops of color here and there. 
They deal the wildlife--ie:deer
by planting in the containers
and pots and
around the deck
where it is fenced in.
Entertaining and antiquing are
favorites of the homeowners
as we saw in the backyard and
garden spaces.

One more garden next week
and then we will move to
another  garden and who
knows where else we will
go!


~Keep on Dreaming~

  5. I like the way they topped the old sewing machine treadle base with a grate. I've seen them topped with wood, but the iron makes it suitable for outside. Great idea.
