Garden Tour: #2 - 2009

This house had quite a simple feel, with several layers of lawns, fruit trees, and roses.  Here are the pictures I snapped of elements I liked.  I realized that I didn't take on of the whole yard...whoops!


Enjoyed this walk way. 

They had an entire shade garden underneath this tree, which was surrounded by three rooms of the house.  It was a nice setting. 


This was a very tall wall...the ivy was pretty cool.  



All the steps from level to level were like so; a rectangle and a triangle.  I liked the combination. 
This was a view towards the daughter's home at the back of the property. (Constructed from an old barn!)




The raspberries. 
Lots of roses adorned the fence in the very back.  Here was a rather nice bloom.  

#3 coming up! 

~ Red Clover


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rose ~ You did miss out, and we missed you.  That's what happens when you live on the other side of the country.  Maybe you should come visit sometime!

EB ~  I prefer less "stuff" as well, but don't mind a few fun ideas.   I'm much more of a plant/flower girl with a few interesting items. 

Karagal ~  Yes, the red was delicious.  It's a great colour in the garden.  (There is a reason why that's the British spelling, you know...ha ha) 

Sir. Bob ~  I'm planning on showing off all the Dahlias.  I'm afraid there will be no where to escape!  I can't wait to post my "Black Dahlia" later on...maybe tonight! 

Jennifer ~  Yes, I am all for lots of time with my husband.  There's nothing better.  Well, lots of time with my husband in the garden might be...ha ha.
