Amazing Gardens

Toured a beautiful garden in a house built on our local river bluff. The house was built on the top level, and the garden descended and twisted down to the street. There were flowers of every type, and garden statutes, gazing balls, stepping stones, a veranda surrounding the house, and a whole collection of rabbit statuary. There was wicker furniture and garden furniture arranged in conversational groups, and the veranda had pictures on the walls of the house and was encased on one side by antique, weathered shutters. There was an outdoor coffee table with appropriate bird statutes andother knick knacks, a gargoyle living next to a hosta, a rabbit wathervane, etc. At one turn, there was a little red wagon full of clam shells. Charming! We visited the home of American Pickers, and antqued a little, too. Everything was well-mulched, and there were many plants suited to shade, a great idea for gardeners who dislike too much sun. A "vampire's garden," perhaps!

It was swelteringly hot, but no one's enthusiasm wilted. My friend next door hosted a party as well; her lovely house is all white, and full of space and great seaside and river decor. Pictures will follow, but it was a lovely day.
