Just a Dream

So yesterday we went on a little garden walk of a 7 acre garden. That's right: 7 acres. I hope that pictures will help explain how gorgeous this garden is. My mom has loved this woman's garden for years and every year she opens it for hundreds to view. And lucky us we got to go yesterday!

Have you ever walked into someone's yard or someone's house and just dream about what it would be like to live there? This was definitely one of those moments.

She absolutely loves hydrangeas of all colors (just like me!)

The yard has bent grass and beautiful grass steps. And a gorgeous pool. With a gorgeous pool house. Her gardeners also have a house on her property. That's right she has a house for her gardeners!

Gardeners' House

I loved her mix of English and French garden components. She had beautiful, sprawling gardens and colorful urns but also had very sleek, minimal topiaries spread throughout. So gorgeous!

And to top it off, she had a man playing French accordion music. I literally felt like I was in a movie! It was definitely such a fun way to spend a Sunday. What a dream that would be!

Here's to a great week! How were your weekends?


  1. Heavens, this is really awesome. I haven't seen such garden owned by anyone in my real life. Your mother does have a great stamina to cope with all of this. Wonderful :) xx

    Sneak peek into my life

  2. Oh wow! This is amazing! I can't imagine how it would be to live there. If I did, how great would it be to lay on a blanket and read and just look around at all of your beautiful surroundings. Beautiful pictures!

  3. Oh this garden is so beautiful! It definitely looks like something from a movie :)
