Smile Beautiful gardens

Really nice pics Karla!

Looks like you have a thing for Bottlebrush Trees......how many do you have?

(I'm on the lookout for a purple bottlebrush myself...bees are supposed to love purple)

Wow you have such a pretty garden. I love how everything meshes so well. Your dog is so adorable by the way. He's not a garden statue right? The house has so much curb appeal. Great job!
Looking to purchase my home so I dont have pictures of my garden. I am a firm believer a garden and the front yard is just as important as the inside of the house. When I go to Savannah I love to look at the houses that are lined with 100-year-old Oaks dripping with moss.

I guess my ideal garden would be to incorporate elements of the public parks that were so elegantly done in the 19th century with the gazebos, trails, statues and iron gates. Makes me feel me dreamie.

Myfask, those pictures are wonderful. Its the kind of garden I love. We moved to Georgia only a year ago and have been working on the inside. Now it's getting time to start creating in the yard. You look like you live in Florida...

Stunning!
