Urban Garden Paradise



I love hydrangeas, especially the blue ones. These were on the garden tour we took last week - the house was pretty nondescript but the yard was heaven...filled with whimsical art, a lovely blue butterfly chair, gazebo, and fire pit with colorful chairs to relax in. Just what they billed themselves as - a paradise in the city! Enjoy!!!!













For more uplifting blue pictures today visit Blue Monday!

I love the butterfly seat!! How fanstastic is that! Brilliant!

Awww the blue hydrangeas are lovely close up like that - they are all the shades of blue going into purple and lilac. Absolutely beautiful.

This is a great way to spend father's day - this garden is very pretty!

Thanks for sharing.

Take care

What a terrific garden! I love that butterfly chair!

Our city participates in Communities in Bloom, where people compete in a variety of urban gardening categories. I don't think there's a tour, but because I walk so much, I do see a number of the gardens. Some are quite creative, and all are lovely. :-)

I suggest this site to my friends so it could be useful & informative for them also. Great effort.

I wish I could grow blue hydrangeas here but they are not hardy enough.

I would have loved going on that tour!
