Come Along on A Tour of My Beautiful Garden

Hey Friends!

Welcome! I’m so glad that you are here. One of my favorite things to do is to take a walk through the garden, but it’s aways so much more fun with a friend. So, let’s go on a tour of my garden together.

This is the entry to my garden. My garden is rather large, I have eight beds that are 40 feet long by 20 feet wide. It is divided by a walkway through the middle. I grow quite of bit of produce, herbs, berries and flowers.

This is an overview of the left side of my garden,
Pumpkins are one of my favorite things to grow. I grow loads of them in many different varieties. The French pumpkins are the best. I use the pumpkins to decorate the farm and the sell the rest at the vintage marketplace.
This gives you an idea of the layout of the garden.
I grow lots of blueberries. They were my kids favorite when they were growing up. I freeze all of the berries and use them for smoothies and blueberry pancakes.
This chess board is the centerpiece of the garden. When we have summer parties, our guests love playing chess here.
Oh how I love fresh artichokes out of the garden.
The blackberry patch. I also, grow loads of blackberries and freeze them. My specialty is blackberry cobbler. Yum!
Raspberries are my very favorite fruit. They never quite make it to a bucket or the freezer, they are eaten straight from the vine.
This is the view from my kitchen window. My garden is my happy place.
I grow loads of herbs. I use them to decorate charcuterie boards, tablescapes and serving platters. I also dry them and use them throughout the year. I’m planning on learning many ways to use lavendar this year. If you have ideas for me, I would love to hear all about them.

Sunflowers are my husbands favorite flower. Each each, I fill an entire bed with Mamoth Sunflowers. They grow to 12-14 feet tall. It’s a sunflower forest. My grandbabies love to run through the sunflower forest.

Until next time,

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
