I love this garden! It just feels so inviting. You can tell that just as much thought as labor and time went into building it.
Beautiful job, Sarah! Kids' gardens are great. Gotta get 'em interested early, and what better way?
On that note: Michelle, we need to see more pics from the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens!
So many great, whimsical details! Now I know what to do with that old iron bed frame I have in my barn!
susanc648, it looks like the Pinterest button on the GPOD page isn't working quite right, but if you have a "pin it" button/link in your browser bookmarks (you have to get that from the Pinterest website), you just have to select the image you want and then click on the bookmark.
Oh, and I love the statue with the hair! I just pinned it on my Pinterest boards.
Your garden looks better than ever in these photos, Carla! Michelle and I really do need to stop by for another visit soon.
Wow, Jean. Your garden has just the perfect texture and flow. It looks like you've wrapped your home up in a comfy, well-worn patchwork quilt. Seems as though you could wander through many times and not see everything. Do you have any little corners carved out for resting and enjoying the view?
A beautiful example of how you can't just plop a house onto a piece of property and expect it to fit...and of how a great designer can make anything look wonderful. I believe that it took a special person to start with that uninspiring and awkward space and turn it into the the wonderfully inviting place it's become. Well done!
Beautiful and impressive, Betsy! Your garden is even more impressive when you consider that you have to carry all of your materials through your house!
One of my favorite GPODs yet! It's not just the wonderful combinations of colors and textures, it's how John captured them with such artfully-composed photos.
Wow! That takes guts to fill in a swimming pool...but I love it. :)
That second photo is so vibrant and surreal! If only I could do 1% of what Sabrina and Freeland do in their gardens...that would be something!
You're on a roll, Michelle! With all the inspirational photos you've been posting lately, I'm gonna be working double-time this spring to build all the garden features that I've been coveting!
Oh, and that's a gorgeous house too!
Wonderful! Makes me miss the woodland spot we gave up for an in-town lot 10 years ago. I love how a garden space in the woods loosely defines your boundaries and lets you stop wherever you're willing to (by reclaiming whatever you don't touch). This is a perfect example of what I hope to get back to when we tire of the stricter rules of town living.
Fun! Something about this reminds me of The Triplets of Belleville.
I love how the bottom 4 steps in the last two photos would fit exactly into the space created by the inward curve of the upper 4 steps, creating a balance of positive and negative space.
Wonderful! I like how there's so much going on in this one detail. I would love to see the entire garden some day. I need to add more details like this to our garden!
I saw the entire collection of pics, and yes, the ones selected are the cream of the crop. But, I'm still super impressed with how she frames her shots. It probably helps that she's been around photographers--especially garden photographers--for pretty much all of her life.
And I love that she's my neighbor! It's always good to have other creative folks on the block...especially ones that share plants that they don't have room for.
Michelle, I hope you post more photos from Sabrina and Freeland's garden -- one of the most beautiful and inviting places I've ever been!
I love that photo! I'm sure I've seen it before.
You say the Wikipedia article on the Lotus Effect is "a little dry"? That's funny. :)
I know it's a little off the topic, but does anyone plant sassafras, perhaps in a woodland garden? I've seen it in every natural patch of woods I've ever been in, except the patch behind my house. I would love to change that.
Beautiful! I swear I'm going to try a patch of thyme lawn in my front yard next year! It's already dry and sandy out there -- I just hope I have enough sun.
Now why haven't I done this yet?! It's on the list for next spring.
Lots of fun! What's the framework for this topiary made of, and was there any pruning involved to get the shapes we're seeing here?
Great example of the value of serendipity in creative endeavors!
I love those fences Brian. There's nothing like a bold but simple structure to make a space pop. Makes me wish I had a modern house where I could get away with more non-traditional elements.
