Summer Gardens of a Craftsman Style Home

This past weekend . . . we were in Georgia.

Yes, for another tournament. We stayed with my brother and his wife.

My sister-in-law, Pam, definitely has a “green thumb” .

Both her indoor and outdoor plants and flowers thrive with her talents.

So I thought I would share her beautiful yard with you today.

There will be lots of photos and less “talk” . . . so sit back and enjoy . . .

~ ~ and take time to smell the roses!

When you walk up to the house on the path leading from the driveway . . .

~ ~ you are greeted with beautiful flowers and the flag waving in the breeze.

      Very pretty flowers, Pam. She does have a green thumb with a little help from her friends….the bees. They pollenate the plants. Just don’t get too close while they’re working their magic.

  5. Wow, she does have a green thumb. Gorgeous landscaping!

    I’m beyond excited to see you!!!! xo

  29. Pam’s house and garden are beautiful. Love her choice of plants, especially the peachy Cannas. Love too the cute fish spout.

  30. Pam really knows how to lay it out! I love that fish at the end of the downspout. I have to try and find one of those bad boys!!! I just hate the way our look, and having whimsical little dudes like that would make it so much more tolerable!

    I didn’t know rosemary acts as deer repellant! Hmmmmm…I plant it for cooking and the wonderful fragrance. Of course, it’s not a perennial in this part of the country, so it wouldn’t be around when needed most in winter. Those deer just come outta nowhere all winter long around here!

    Beautiful landscaping! Pam should be very proud of her handiwork!
