One more set of pictures from the garden tours my friend Emily and I took a few weeks back. This home had a lovely front yard raised vegetable garden along with flower beds with a mulch pathway through.
A wood deck had been added to the entrance with a private spot for sitting under shade trees. There were enormous window boxes attached to the chimney and outside walls.
Around back the owners who were both artists, had converted an old storage shed into two small studios for their art work. To us they could easily have been guest rooms or a small apartment - they looked so cozy and welcoming.
Next to the studios they had built a small patio with a pergola and another bit of greenery and birdbath. It was lovely and very private.
On the way out we stopped by an ancient red oak tree which had a metal plaque on it denoting it as a Precious Tree - one that had stood there for hundreds of years from the size of it. It provided lots of shade for their carport and the side rooms of the cozy bungalow. My friend Emily is showing us how big the tree trunk is!
