This is one of the homes on the tour.....my friend Paula's amazing house and garden. I stopped over yesterday to help her with a little plant identification. OK.....twist my arm....... plus it's been a little slow this week because of the rain. I just love when it rains.....but it's been a bit much this week. This weekend it's suppose to clear up and here's hoping we have great weather for the tour too.
Anyways......as I was approaching her house. I was stunned at how gorgeous the stones that lined the picket fence were. A new addition to help hold the bank on the edge of the road. She laid them all by hand herself. The other side of the fence is all blue nikko hydrangeas.
Water gently trickles water out of the old watering can and adds a peaceful sound.
The Bird Nest Inn with Akebia Vine growing all around the arbor. Isn't it just so charming? This was also orginally on the property used as a chicken coop. The inside is completely decorated and just to die for and when you come back I'll give you a look- see. It was getting late and hard to see inside with just candlelight.....
