~ inspired garden: mary

After a quick tour of this lovely home, Mary was kind enough to allow me to traipse through her yard on a Sunday afternoon. It felt sort of like a vacation. About 75 degrees, the sun shining in a blue sky, and the view? Spectacular! 
As I often say, prepare yourself for serious beauty...











The mature trees provided just the right amount of shade...




I loved the charming gates with the incredible garden growing overhead!







This tree takes up a nice sized section of the yard... Stunning!



Another charming gate...

Love the octagon shape...

Lush..












This tree reminded us of a Dr. Seuss tree with those fluffy pink blossoms...














Vacation indeed... I was overwhelmed with this lush and beautifully manicured yard. Everywhere I turned was another vignette to photograph. I tried to edit with this many photos, but had a hard time being selective as every shot was worthy of being shared. Thank you Mary! Thank you for sharing this gorgeousness with us!

Gorgeous garden! The hostas and hydrangeas are to die for. We live in a Mediterranean climate (Southern California) where the monthly water bill to keep such a lush space green would exceed most people's mortgage payment.

hydrangeas are so beautiful + the lushness is unbelievable + I can see where editing would be impossible. xxpeggybraswelldesign.com

I love all the gates and how each one seems to be leading to a secret garden. So lush and green...and definitely an inspiration to us all. The cedar shingles (is that right?) siding is also wonderful!

No wonder you felt like you were on vacation; it's very restful. I especially love the masses of white hydrangeas, and of course, that awesome tree!
