Garden Inspiration

Click here to view this photo in a new window.

Although I like a property that has a natural park look to it with unmanicured mass plantings, I like the garden decor concept of "rooms" . . . definite themed sections of the garden . . . I love the garden in this photo for some inspiration.  There is something so soothing about white against the high contrast of green that brings a feeling of serenity.  A small water feature in the center would be awesome!

Beautiful garden pictures!

This past summer/fall we did some landscaping in the back yard. All the hardscape is in place but it's just not quiet right yet. I'm not a gardener - so getting the right mix of plants is going to be hard, but then it's the details that make the difference.

Half the fun is in the planning!

Our garden has been totally trashed by the past two harsh winters for our area . . . I'm envious too!

Lots of hard work ahead, including planning, so . . . look for lots of inspirational posts from me!

Thank you all for visiting, commenting and/or following :)

I think Spring has finally arrived in Florida . . . fingers crossed!
