Well, you have probably figured out by now that I love to go on garden tours... :)
The photos here were taken way back in June, at a local garden tour in a nearby town. I love this shingle-style home, built in 1904. You can see the side view in the photos above. I felt uncomfortable taking a picture of the front, as the owner was on the front porch greeting garden visitors. The side view of the house does give you an idea of what a beautiful house it is, though -- don't you just love those windows?
The garden itself was rather formal, with a brick path leading to a small stone bench encircled by a yew hedge. There were lovely decorative touches throughout, including a pair of blue and white Chinese jars planted with roses, and an elegant fountain just off the side porch.
And do you see what was parked in the driveway?! A vintage baby blue Mustang! How cool is that???
