I went on a Garden Walk on Sunday and toured about six houses, this one I'm blogging about is just one home, and it happens to be my bosses, she's an amazing gardener. The home is situated on an extra wide triple lot. The home is reminicent of the English Cottage style, with character, charm, and romance. Her and her husband have just moved in only 18 months ago and she has completely revamped the whole landscape that had been let go. The gardens were amazing, stunning, georgeous, fantastic and inspiring. They dug out old yews, removed huge pine trees and put in an incredible rock garden feature in the front of the home on a small hill...quite an ingenius way to use the land...it's all about vision. The variety of perenials is breathtaking mixed with annuals gives just the right color splash. The property is surrounded on each side and along the back with a stone wall "to die for", the stone was quarried when the house was built. There is an inground pool on the grounds but I missed getting photos of that, a really cute potting shed and porch boxes surround the front and side, a couple of arbor gates and just the right touch of adornmentation without being tacky. Take notice of the "conversation pieces", man and woman planter heads and I love the little cherubs "sharing a secret" and are a few others here and there. I manipulated a few photos in photoshop, the "heads" to give them a real old feel of texture, the full house shot to give a drawing effect, the flowers for a monet look, the cherubs for an artsy look and another one of the house. Come back on "Pink Saturday" this week and see a few more shots with all the pinks in them that I'm saving for that. I hope you enjoyed this little tour. Thanks for stopping by.
