A Country Garden

There is a garden that I have long admired and enjoyed.
Its effortless look and uncontrived beauty is such a joy.
This garden belongs to my friend Judy.
This victorian planter sits outside year round.
The  back yard and end of the drive.
Her workshop building is in the background. Lucky!
I love all the granite and how she places them.
See the little frog perched on the granite chair?
A bell tower stands as sentinel on a
frenchy style pea gravel drive
surrounded by rock walls.
Old clorox bottles and a rusty fleur~de~lis.
Perfect companions under the bell tower.
This beauty of a bell sits on a long low wall.
Grasses add texture and drama.
This metal flower stake is her latest addition.
This is Judy and Lance's charming cape.
The front garden.
A rusty milk can  topped with a sundial.
A frog sits amidst the bee balm.
Old iron urns on the granite stoop complement the door.
She has a natural talent for putting together
flowers, plants and garden art elements.

A purple gazing ball in the day lilly island
A cement ball sits on a slab of granite
while a turquoise garden chair adds some flair.
Even Judy's watering post looks artful.

Simply beautiful.
A real country garden.
