My Sister's Garden

We all call it her secret garden and it truly is the most charming cottage garden you will ever see. She lives in a town house with just a tiny space for a garden and my goodness, has she ever made use of her personal spot on this earth! Let me first take you thru her arbor, covered with miniature pink roses and twinkle lights.    In fact, she has twinkle lights everywhere, which truly makes it magical at night.  I hope you will come away with some ideas with this tour of my sister's special place (and ours too).  (thank you Deb for allowing me to share your garden.  She is also the photographer) Maybe next time she will let me photograph her sweet screened porch.  Oh the vintage pieces you will love!

 Can you stand it?   

 this red metal rocker is starting to weather to a beautiful pink....will she repaint it? ...not on your life  :)

she collects the old blue Ball jars and like me, she loves her old terra cotta flower pots with the patina of green moss and leached soil minerals

 IDEA:   Did you notice her rugs..She has several layered rugs in one outdoor area, which gives pause to think it's a separate little room.  Love that she put the rugs over white rocks

that gorgeous french wire table was a find at Luckett's Virginia.

this charming birdhouse was a find at Luckett's Spring Market

thank you for dropping by today.....see you soon with a fabulous recipe for Fall

I'm calling my sister and tell her to step it up. She needs to take lessons. I guess we could all take a lesson from your sister. The red/pink chair is lovely.

Such a beautiful space. Gives me hope for the day I have to downsize (my husband's wishes not mine) that I can still have a beautiful garden.
Thanks for sharing

Lynn, your sister's arbor is magical in the daylight. I can only imagine how charming it looks in the evening with mini lights twinkling.

What a wonderful garden you sister has created. It does not require a lot of space to share neat ideas.

What a special, intimate garden space. I am afraid I would spend all my time in it and get nothing done!
