I thought exploring these garden pictures on this dark, blustery, winter day would get me excited for spring!
This unique house was along the way on the walk, but the garden was not featured. I liked their landscaping quite a bit as it reminded me of what my home's landscaping looked like when I moved in. :) I have got to trim hedges to get this nice manicured look back!
A beautiful water feature.
A sunny and wonderfully colorful front yard garden. You can click on the photo to enlarge it. I love this!!
Another enviable manicured area.
The homeowner told us this was a bowling ball with grout, pennies, and marbles. She got it free from a bowling alley when they were getting rid of balls. Neat idea!
A massive water feature, in an extremely scenic side yard.
An out of bloom clematis grows low on this unique fence trellis.
A distant look at the huge water feauture.
Beyond the water feature this shed, and whimsical glass balls. I loved this scene, and stared at for a long time.
Grape vines and grapes clung to the stone walls of the old home.
A rock garden nestled in one of the sunnier spots beside the water feature. Love how the gold ball ornament is just stuck down in between the sedum.
More views of the water feature from different angles.
This is another home, in a shaded woodland area.
This sun was suspended from fishing line in both directions, and just dangling above a garden bed.
Love these bird baths made from elephant ears, but have never seen one in real life. So cool!
I love this idea: to keep track of her roses, this gardener painted their names on rocks, in an obviously weather-proof paint.
This very tall yellow orienpet lily was gorgeous, and smelled incredible!
I did a lot of chatting, and exporing, so I didn't take as many pictures as I may have liked. I hope you enjoyed my snapshots of the 2009 Garden Walk.
