Welcome to the 284th Metamorphosis Monday!
I don’t have a typical Before and After to share today, but I do have a beautiful spring garden metamorphosis. I toured several gardens the weekend of Mother’s Day and the one I’m sharing today was completely enchanting. Even the house had that fairy tale feel.
The window boxes across the front were overflowing with beautiful flowers.
The back yard was one of the most beautiful shade gardens I’ve ever seen. Shade gardens can sometimes be a little boring but this one had so many special features, it was anything but boring.
There were cozy spots to rest and enjoy the flowers.
This was the view standing up near the house looking down into the back yard.
The backyard was really large with lots of different spaces.
Loved this sweet little garden shed. See the little sign on the left.
Here’s what it said.
I pressed my face against the door and peered in to get a glimpse of the inside. Nice and orderly, each tool in its place.
In the backyard, one large section was covered in moss…a moss lawn.
A toadstool completed the fairy feeling of this spot. Wonder how it feels to walk barefoot on moss? Wonder if it feels really soft and cushy?
In addition to fairies, it looks like we have some gnomes living here, gnomes who enjoy resting in their own Adirondack chair. 😉
Most of the accent colors throughout the garden were in the same aqua/turquoise color we saw in the shutters on the front of the home.
More blues and aqua colors in the mosaic stepping-stones.
An aqua blue potting bench…
An aqua/turquoise garden sphere, love a garden with lots of decorative surprises throughout.
A whimsical bottle tree to capture those mischievous nighttime spirits…
My favorite flower…Foxgloves.
A pretty pond…
Another spot to rest…
An aqua fountain…
I’m not sure what this was up in the trees but it looked really pretty from down below.
Looking forward to all the great Before and Afters for this Metamorphosis Monday!
