Garden Candy

It's June....summer parties are coming - right? We are gearing up for our Garden Party next week and thought this week would be the perfect time to share some of our favorite ideas for the garden that we've been collecting....

Today's garden candy is from My Home Ideas and the article 50 Fresh Ideas For Outdoor Rooms and may be found here.

This first picture made us ohhh and ahhh! How gorgeous would this be....really? *sigh*
They trained pear trees to come together like this - quite lovely...any time of the year don't you think?

Edging your garden with brick, stones, shells....but the top of old columns? This made us take a double look! Can you even imagine finding all of those lovely ionic columns? wow!

One thing I learned as a designer....you should always have a little bit of black somewhere in a room.....and why not carry this outdoors?
This is just the best yard sculpture / water feature we've seen! It is so fun accenting your garden with things that you love - make it special - just like the inside of your home....give your outdoor "rooms" personality too!
