MORE GREAT IDEAS

That Brilliant idea in my last post was that of Robert Meaders’, architect extraordinaire.  Also seen in his garden…

                                                                        

A welcoming collection of pots,

                                                                     

 an urn, perfectly placed in a border.

                                                                     

Another pot, that echoes the foliage of the hostas and the hydrangeas beyond.

                                                                      

Many other delightful & unique features  make this garden truly special.

Thank you Robert.

GARDEN TOUR

Yesterday I ventured into Atlanta for one of the annual garden tours.

This year the majority of gardens were small  urban spaces, well-appointed  for outdoor living.

                                                                            

Above, a comfortable chaise in shade for reading and listening to the sound of the waterfall (below).

                                                                     

                                                              

Festoons of ivy grace an otherwise nondescript wall along a driveway.

                                                                       

Lushly planted window boxes.

                                                                     

And below, a private putting green!

                                                                     

I will share more highlights during the week.
