I hope you’re not tired of seeing images from Innisfree Garden yet, because I can’t help myself from devoting another couple of days to this amazing place. Today I’m highlighting this beautiful patio so vividly adorned with these sunny yellow chairs. But the biggest treat is when you’re standing among them and look down to see the figures carved into the pavers. Take a look! (last 3 photos) Subtle, but oh-so-cool.

    Carved pavers are a wonderful surprise. Glad I looked at all the photos to see the close up. Thanks!

    How lovely to see mossy plants growing between the pavers! Most patios look so pristine and sterile that I wouldn't be tempted to 'sit a spell'. Thanks for sharing photos of this lovely garden.

    Lovely, serene space. The yellow is surprisingly soft and harmonious. What are the plants on the posts pretending to be trees? Or are they pollarded trees? Can't tell.

    What an enchanting garden. I'm with you on this one Michelle. Those stone pavers are magnificent and the soft yellow for the seating area is perfect.
