The Garden Gate


Hello, Monday! How was the weekend? We celebrated the kickoff of a long-delayed landscaping project on a very rainy Saturday. And if you're looking for a place to make mud pies, come on over. We'll be tracking the stuff in for awhile, I'm afraid, but for now there are dreams of garden gates, white picket fences, cocktails on a blue stone terrace and all kinds of beautiful blooms...












What does your dream garden look like?

Have a wonderful week, all. Here's to sunny days and sipping rosé under the rose arbor! XO

  2. I am in love!! Hydrangeas are my very favorite and I simply cannot grow them here because those cute animals we call Deer mow them down every year!! Oh how I would love a yard like that!!

    1. Hi Karolyn, That is such a same that the deer mow down your hydrangeas. I can't get enough of them - we have a few now, but with our new landscaping there will be many, many more. Can't wait! Happy Monday. XOXO

    1. Ha - Debra, we've been talking about getting a dog for ages but decided to wait at least until after our landscaping project was done. Now I'm so glad we did. My husband and I are literally wearing hiking boots to get through the yard. Can't imagine what would happen if we had to take a dog out in it! Happy Monday! Thanks again for posting the photos of my party. XOXO

    1. Thanks Teresa, I will definitely post some photos as it comes together. I'm afraid that what it looks like now is not very pretty or inspiring - but I'm thinking of it as a blank canvas waiting to be painted on.

      Happy Monday! XOXO

  6. Hi Jeanne, this is just heaven to me!!!! It POURED all weekend, snowed this morning and now the sun is out. I feel like I've lived a month in 3 days. Your garden inspiration is so similar to mine!! :) We are tweaking a plan we created years ago, inching our way toward the backyard of my dreams. Well, maybe not all my dreams, but definitely a day dream's worth. Arbor with roses, white gates, large stepping stones and a few other details. I need to photograph the "before" so I can enjoy the "after" even more.

    Here's to mud pies and dreams!
    xoxo Elizabeth

  7. Our dream gardens looks just like the pictures you've posted - rose arbors and hydrangea bushes and garden gates leading to secret paths! We had our fair share of rain this weekend and it's a wet mess out there... We may need to wait a bit before planting any new plants!
