City Spaces, Country Places~A Garden Tour in Massachusetts

Today, we treated ourselves to a garden tour. This was my husband's Father's Day gift. Here is a taste of what we saw. It inspired us and it might inspire you as well. Coming soon...a tour of our garden!
Humpty Dumpty~I Need One of These!

Over the Hedge!

This is cocoa mulch on the floor of the bed. Ever try it? It's real cocoa bean shells and smells great!
I would have it now, but my dog would eat it. ;( I have had it before in my herb garden and LOVED it! Darn dog!

A Place to Enjoy a Glass of Wine

A Relaxing Nook

Place Settings Ready for a Summer Dinner on the Patio
My son is obviously done as he is exiting the garden in the background!
Note to self: Do not take a 5 year old on a garden tour unless there are
gallons of ice cream at every stop!
Tea Time

A Potted Herb Garden-So Smart!

  3. Hi Alyssa, my first visit to your blog, but I am sure I will visit again. I popped over from Stone Gable, Yvonne's great blog. Your garden is beautiful, I love Humpty Dumpty. You certainly have a green thumb. xo,
