Yesterday I shared some pictures from a garden tour that Tom and I took over the weekend. Today I want to show you the pictures from my favorite stop on the tour, a tudor home in the Sunset Hill area of KC.
This planted urn on a pedestal and antique fountain are two of the first things you pass as you enter the back yard.
There is a pea gravel path that snakes around the edge of the back yard, and along the way are several small “rooms” or seating areas.
The edges of the yard are the shady part of the garden. Lots of hostas and hydrangeas.
The path leads you back around to a brick patio area along the back of the house.
I was really taken with this potting bench on the patio. So lovely to look at, but practical for potting and when entertaining too, I imagine. I’d like to create something similar – on a much smaller scale – on my patio.
While tours like these of gardens or homes can be overwhelming, I try to find one or two little takeaways that I’m inspired to try at home.
Part of the brick area is this path to a newly-built pergola with a fountain in the middle.
In the middle of the yard is a large, sunny space with grass areas and this gorgeous pool.
If I ever have a pool, I’d want it to be just like this one.
The entire garden tour was beautiful, but this was definitely my favorite stop. I hope you enjoyed it too.
