I saved the best for last!
Worker Bee and I both thought this was our favorite garden.
A Garden of My Dreams
Bliss............gorgeous pink roses lining the walkway to the front door.
Under dappled shade these roses are so lovely!
(Did you know I LOVE pink roses? Worker Bee does - what a smart bee he is.)
And that picket fence - lined with gorgeous snapdragons.
As you approached the front porch, an old rusty mailbox stored garden gloves and tools. So charming!
This path led from the front porch to the side yard entrance.
Who doesn't love a bicycle basket filled with flowers?
Love the red wagon too!
This was just on the other side of that slider.
Foxgloves......sweet peas in a basket....and do you see the nasturtiums? (Silly Worker Bee and I call these nasties. Do you have nicknames for plants? Or is that just something Worker Bee and I do?)
So much cottage garden charm!
Sweet little potting area....
But then we come to one of my favorite areas - their patio!
Hello! Don't you just love that table and box window (I think that's what it was) on the wall? Her attention to detail was amazing!
Go ahead......just enjoy the eye candy!
Doesn't that table look like it's right out of the pages of a magazine? You may have noticed I have a thing for a lot of things, but I really have a thing for ivy and candles.
Not only did she have gorgeous flowers and public spaces, but her veggie garden and compost area were cottagey and charming too.
Yep, here's some more eye candy!
Do you think she would let me move into her yard? I could set up a little tent - maybe even a cottagey little tent made out of a quilt - can't you see it? I'd blend right in, don't you think?
Well, thanks for coming along with me on all our garden tours. If you missed them, you can see them here, here, and here. Worker Bee and I tremendously enjoyed our 22nd anniversary date and I'm glad you came along.
And you never know what you'll find as you're strolling to a garden.....
Something perfect for Sewing Bee!
My mom (aka Sewing Bee) has a thing for bunnies. (Hey! Something I don't have a thing for! Will wonders never cease?)
I just knew she'd adore these sweet little bunny topiaries!
I'm trying to convince her she should name her new little home
Bunny Run Cottage!
What do you think? Any other suggestions for her cottage with bunny in it?
And, of course, how can I resist linking up with Pink Saturday for those gorgeous pink roses?
Just found a new garden party over at Fishtail Cottage! Won't you join the fun there?
