IN THE FIELD: Another Glimpse Of Summer


I find it rather inspiring how some folks can turn a tiny space into an inviting garden.

I shot this photo in the first week of September when the summer season was winding down.

    This is beautiful, David, like a secret garden! Jewel colours, and I love the composition.

      The homeowners whole property is like this…at least what I could see. I would love to have a secret garden again. Hopefully we can start one next spring!

    I love how the color pops among the green. Wonderful.

      I could see little splashes of color throughout the garden. It is really pretty.

    What a beautiful house with flowers… Thank you dear David, love, nia

      It sure is…there were pots of flowers and small garden spaces everywhere. I would love to see the whole thing!

    So warm and welcoming 🙂

      It’s the owners private haven…something we hope to create at the new house…gonna be tough on the top of a hill though LOL.

    That person got a wealth of beauty out of a tiny space!

      I could see other small spaces where they created little sanctuaries…it was such a peaceful property.

    Gorgeous! I have always wanted a structured garden, but it is a lot of work! Thanks for showing us how it can be done.

      Hi Joylene, our former next door neighbors had a formal garden they created in a small space. We had small back yards! They always said that’s the key…small spaces require a lot less effort. It was a joy to hang out over there!

    How delightful! A wonderful example of the built environment working well with the Natural environment. The white-washed wall and red canopy really provide a super backdrop for the beautiful plants.

      I like this because it’s tailored, yet cottage like at the same time. It works for me mainly because I can’t decide how I would like our next garden to be. I think we shall try combining the two styles.

    It’s true, some people have a real knack for containers and window boxes. Nice photo!

    • October 7, 2013 at 4:18 pm

      Our former next door neighbors were that way. They would create extraordinary containers. In fact, their whole place was that way!

    Look at how all the greenery makes the colors pop. Really lovely.

    • October 7, 2013 at 4:20 pm

      It sure is inviting…I wish I could shift/click the garden right over to my house!

  10. October 19, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    Absolutely beautiful! Such a pleasant view 🙂

    • October 21, 2013 at 8:47 am

      Isn’t it though? I would love to have a window garden like this!

  11. October 28, 2013 at 5:27 am

    Seriously, this is beautiful. Some good inspirations here. 🙂

    • October 28, 2013 at 3:20 pm

      I noticed the whole property was neat and trim just like this photo…I do miss having a garden. But next spring will be different for sure!

  12. October 29, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    How quaint and inviting! Another good find, David!

    • October 31, 2013 at 12:06 pm

      Thanks Fergie, I’ll have to visit the area next Spring to see how they planted the area…you know gardeners…always changing things!
