I enjoyed the Garden Gala in Jonesborough, TN on Saturday . . . great gardening inspirations!!! Here are a few pictures of my favorite spots on the tour:
This yard is my favorite for garden inspirations . . . so many cute ideas!
I could have stayed here all day!
Oh, but there was more to see . . .
Look at those ferns ! ! !
On with the tour . . .
Not a clue as to what kind of bird this is . . . beautiful . . . succulents growing on the roof of the cage.
Cute idea to put electrical insulators on an iron fence!
Time for tea . . . or punch . . . and cookies.
Jan greets us at the tea in her "garden hat". She's a hoot!
Refreshed and ready to move on . . .
a lovely cottage garden by a lovely Scottish lady. She says that her sister attended the Chelsea Flower Show in England and that they no longer call a plant "invasive" . . . they are now referred to as "promiscuous" . . . love it!
The fairy garden.
Lovely gardens everywhere on this property!
On to Dick's garden railway:
And then my camera's battery died!
We visited a few others and then ended the tour at the Ardinna Woods Arboretum & Butterfly Garden . . . a labor of love. I purchased a pussy willow plant from the Arboretum and returned home chomping at the bit to dig up the entire yard for new gardens . . .
