First of all, thank you everyone for your kind comments on yesterdays post; and thank you Jody and Cyn for giving me some great ideas for my big shortening tin/bin. It is still so hot here...not much crafting getting done...actually not much of anything getting done. The humidity in our house right now is registering 100%...is that possible without it actually raining? :) I believe I know what it feels like in a rainforest.
Last weekend Mike and I went to a local Garden Walk. There were over 200 gardens listed and we only saw a fraction of them...the ones that we toured were beautiful. Next year I hope to go again and see more of the ones I missed.
Here are a few of my favorites:There was a small neighborhood comprised of these cute brick cottages, some of which date back to the 1800's...
The homes were as fun to see as the gardens.
This is another of the brick cottages...I love it!!! Could I possibly hope to duplicate these window boxes next year for my house?!
This garden was at a beautiful Victorian home, where the owners were both dressed up Victorian style, including a little black bowler hat for the husband and a lovely Victorian gown on the wife...
After the garden tour I had the desire to hit all the garden stores on the way home and buy up tons of plants. The heat, however, and my budget won out...so I didn't come home with any new flowers, but lots of great ideas!
