Welcome to our Garden Tour
Here is my Garden. It is our 3rd Summer with the Garden. We planted it all ourselves. It was created from a bleak empty landscape.
The fountain was shipped to New York from Alabama. It is the center piece of our tiny Renaissance style garden.
The large statue was my birthday gift this year. She is the Statue that represents Summer. My Favorite time of year.
The small statue was a gift from my Mother-in-law. It is nestled in the Rugosa Roses. It is viewed through the espaliered
fruit arbor. She is reading sonnets to two love birds at her feet. She felt it represented my husband and me.
There is a garden path that winds around and through our little garden. The back path has a saying that my son and I carved in the stone with a "Rotozip" tool. As you walk stones reveal a saying one word at a time along the way. The saying is "The secret to Life is to be Grateful". It is a daily reminder for us.
The back garden and lawn. The walkway is hidden behind the flowers.
Throughout the garden the little vignettes are placed to be viewed in the distance.You will find them at the end of a walkway, arbor, or as a surprise around a corner in the path.
I hope you have enjoyed your time here. It is my sanctuary at the end of the day and a place of peace first thing in the morning with my cup of coffee.
Thanks for stopping by. Debra
