Friday Field Trip Part 2


Lace up those shoes we are ready for
Part 2. Our tour begins with house
five a lovely Tudor Revival style home.
The front yard was immaculate but the
backyard was a shade lover's delight!
This was my second fave house.

A dressed bench greets visitor's as
they round the corner to enter in
the back. A delight awaits!

 As you enter, one's eye goes directly
to the ginormous tree that is over 100
years old. It is so big, I could not get
the whole thing in the pic. 

The homeowner has placed a little
whimsy here and there. This little
table vignette was set up in the back
garden area. 

More from the back garden. I believe
this was the statue called "Water Girl."

Cute little potting shed.

Come sit for awhile.

This area...what can one say? I could live
here for sure.

This little area is off to the right of the
large table.

Well, well look who I spotted in the garden.

House six was a quirky whimsical place.
Complete with the homeowner watering
EVERYTHING as visitors were touring
her garden areas. :)

Beautiful bursts of color here and there.
The homeowner made the most of her
small yards.

A fountain here leading into a goldfish

A Koi Pond there.

More Whimsy here.

And the face on this
concrete leaf.

Little gazebo for a peaceful rest.

On the other side of the yard, where
the Koi pond was, it had lilies in it.

Well, we have made it, last house on the
tour. A Mid-Century house with lots of
Pine, Cedar, Cypress and Spruce.

As visitor's make their way around
to the back, they are greeter with
this beautiful Magnolia tree.

Love the color of  this Iris.

Tired but happy. One of the guides took
our pic.

Hope you enjoyed.

Friday Field Trip Part 1


Friday we headed out to the Kansas City Master Gardener Tour.

Our first stop was at a home built in 1915.

The homeowners made the most of a
small plot. There were several shade
plants and Hostas plus a dry creek bed
was off to the north.


This lovely brick home was our second
stop and as you can see by the sign at the
top of of the steps "No photography" was
a loud.
This home also had a small garden area.
they used rain barrels along with a
dry creek bed. The hedges by the stairs
were immaculate.
One of the more interesting items in this
garden was the VERY LARGE "vase,"
carved from a the trunk of a palm tree
and imported from Hawaii!!

Stop three on the tour was at this cute
little number. It was built in1917 and
purchased from the original owner
after 75 years.

Ever turn had something to look at.
A gazing  ball peeks out of the grasses.

A different type of Clematis. Love the
"fuzzy" center.

The green ball moved around in
the water, so fun to watch.
This was fave house one.

 Stop number four.

This my friends is a large Agave plant.
We had never seen a plant like this! The
homeowner also had clippings in pots on
the front porch.

Another plant that I was not aware
of (where have I been) anyway this
is a Cone Hydrangea.

A winding path leads visitors to the
backyard and this pretty fountain.

Creative art added whimsy to the

Rest your feet, we will continue
the tour soon.
