I wanted to start where we first saw the back courtyard...in her studio. The vista from here was one of the best I've ever seen. What a beautiful way to start the day. I imagine I wouldn't get much work done if I was left here. I'd be watching the birds and looking at the progress of the garden as the season progressed. Not much work would be accomplished but I'm sure Adrienne is not like me. I'm easily distracted.....just ask my husband. ha-ha
I love the shape of this bench or settle I think they call it. Her boxwoods just lend themselves to the classic look of the garden. There's a nice balance of formal and informal in this garden that gives it it's charm. From here you can almost see the little ceramic mushrooms she has in the pot on the right. Laura and I both noticed all the ones she had in her garden though I forgot to take pics of more of them.
Old vintage tools hanging by the front porch....
Oh there's Laura taking a picture of our favorite metal bee skep- turned gardenhose holder. I think we'll have to find out where Adrienne bought that one.
Her gorgeous hand painted table.
Aren't I lucky to have such a talented friend.
