Pond Tour

Each year in Oklahoma City we have the Oklahoma City Water Garden Tours. We always attend even when it's 105..like last Saturday! I wanted to share a few pictures. You will see that I was more mesmerized by the flowers and flower beds this time.





Just look at these daisies! No full sun on our lot to make these babies happy.



Look closely at the picture below. These plants are in a metal table that has been lined. I have one of these in my attic. Guess what I will be doing soon... Oh the lady said she used all miniature plants.
Always love the tipped over pot look.
These simple large flat rocks make the best walk way.

Pretty!! Double click on the picture below. The rocks to the right are actually a recirculating fountain.
Now this home below was HUGE! I believe they had a "staff" to help them.

Thanks for visiting with me today. I'm actually off playing with my friend who is here from out of town. :) Have a wonderful week!

Stacey,

Wonderful tour! I love the metal table idea~can't wait to see yours. I like seeing and planting myself, flowers in unusual "planters". I'm always looking for that oddball thing. I was just at a party last weekend and the hostess had one of those pots turned on it's side, overflowing with impatiens. I had forgotten that idea!! Love it!

So glad you had a nice time and came away with lots of inspiration!

You know how I love ponds! They always inspire me to create more and more outside. Boy, is the heat ever going to let up? Have lots of fun with your friend, Stacey!

I thought it looked like your back yard. It is pretty but not as pretty as yours.

I love the photos! It gives me inspiration for things I would love to do in my yard, if I ever get the guts to actually start digging! :)

I enjoyed your tour, Stacey, and especially liked the daisies and the tipped over pot (we have one beside our pond with jasmine in it).
