Very Impressive!

Last Saturday we enjoyed our yearly tradition of touring
backyard gardens and ponds with our friends John and Cheryl.

Of course we wanted to share some of the pics with you. :)

I talked about the tour last year at this spot on the blog.

Nice people open their yards and share the beautiful gardens they've created behind the fence.

You never know what's hiding back there!

I admit to loving the flowers and vignettes that people create just as much as the ponds.

Sometimes the vignettes are so pretty that Cheryl and I would love to see inside the homes.

Wouldn't that be fun?

Most of all I love the tradition with my husband and our sweet friends.

Have you toured a garden lately?


  1. The only garden I have toured lately is my own! It's been keeping me busy...just to answer the question you left on my blog about the TV over the fireplace: yes we burn a fire and it hasn't done a thing to the TV. It's perfectly safe. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. If anyone came to tour my "garden" they would faint from disappointment. :( It is just terrible this year! Bah!


  3. Stacey, your pond is so should be on the tour :-)
    Hope you are enjoying your summer.

  4. What a great tradition. I would love to see some of my neighbors backyards. It always seems like they have such great ideas. :)


  5. Stacey, That's a beautiful tour! And, I know what you mean about wanting to look inside too...Nancy

  6. Hi there!
    I visit your blog and always enjoy the things you post. Love the garden tour and party idea! When I lived in Houston, I used to go to a garden tour around azalea time each year. So fun! You get great ideas, too! I am having a giveaway on my blog....I am giving away a pair of INC dressy pants in a size 8. (Could fit a 6 possibly, too) If any of your readers are interested, they can visit my blog and leave a comment. I will select a winner on Monday and post it. Have a happy 4th of July! xoxo Kim
