The first garden that we went to was down a long driveway with a wildflower meadow...full of multi-colored poppies, lupine, and grasses. I knew right then we were in for a treat.
Several artists had their work displayed in this garden, this was my favorite piece...I really like glass in the garden. This one is my favorite and it's only $3000 bucks, hey...my birthday is coming up...hint hint.
This metal art made every person that walked by it smile...whimsical...anndddd recycled!
These flags were all over the garden, it was a beautiful breezy day and they were all different colors and sizes.... made for a fun, party atmosphere.
The extremely rare blue bottleicus treeicus. These always crack me up, I have a few of these blue bottles around the farm, I think I would have a hard time selling this idea to The Husband. Oh....and check out the view of the harbor!
This garden had every plant one could imagine, really colorful combinations and great winding paths.
Check out the water feature by the front door! Wowza! Everywhere you looked in this garden there was a feature...mosaics on the walls, on the ground, art hanging on posts in the garden and on the house, mirrors in several places to reflect different features...it really was amazing.
I call these dinosaur eggs. The first time I saw one was on a garden tour in Seattle a couple of years ago, ever since then I've wanted to make one to put in my garden....the list of "I wanna" projects for my garden is um.... long ;)
At the very back edge of the garden was this path, 50 steps down to the beach and a jungle hut! Oh mannn...decisions decisions. I decided not to make the trek...I spent a few hours at the chiropractor this past week, I'm not taking any chances.
I have so many more photos of this garden but I think I'll save them for another post.
