THE BEAUTY OF A GARDEN

Around this time of year, many of us get spring fever and are ready to plant and enjoy the beauty of a garden.  I am headed out this weekend to buy my herbs and flowers to plant. There is something about digging in the soil that relaxes me.

Below are some of my favorite gardens, and I hope that these gardens will add a little spring to your day.  ENJOY!

LOVE the first one. Sadly, I can't even keep a cactus alive but I guess there are always landscapers! xo

Teresa,

I love all of these beautiful gardens. Spring is right around the corner and I absolutely have spring fever. I love your blog, I just started my own and hope you will come take a peek and give me your professional opinion.

Teresa,
You have really put a lot of effort into this post. I loved all the gardens, but the one I would wish for is the very first one. The brick walk and elevated garden is the one I want.
The tall hedges are second wish.
Thank you,
I have 2 feet of snow on my french doors.

Teresa, I love lavender, it's my favorite flower, but unfortunately I can't have it in my garden because it doesn't like tropical weather with lots of rain. I have these beauties planted in pots, the smell is delicious.
Now picture number three reminds me of Meryl Streep's garden in movie It's complicated, it's beautiful.
You really brought Spring to my extremely hot Summer day, thank you.
Wish you a happy weekend
Tereza

I love these gardens, Teresa! They are so inspiring. I'm new to gardening and I've found it to be really relaxing. I like that the possibilities of color and design are endless. I am saving this post! Happy weekend xo

Sounds like my kind of weekend! Great images- love the tomato trellis in particular. I'm working on my own raised vegetable garden- my first- and was happy to have this extra inspiration.

Design is... All in the Detail said...

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH - I have garden envy - silk plants shutter when I walk by them in a store! My mother had a green arm - my childhood home was a picture out of House & Garden... she would spend hours outside with her gardening gloves, tools and large hat to shade her eyes. Gardens are a huge endeavor and I admire anyone who can tackle the task! I can't wait to see all your blooms, Teresa. Have fun this weekend - Jalon

Are you really planting them already? I want to as well! I want my raised beds and my tomatoes to look just like these gorgeous pictures! This was inspiring indeed! Thanks for sharing!

Carolyn-
I would probably wait if I were planting in Birmingham. I am planting these at the beach and have the warmer air coming in off of the water.
Happy weekend.

Gorgeous post, Teresa! You have inspired me...I want to go to a local nursery this wknd. Hope you have a nice wknd! xo

Beautiful, inspiring images Teresa. I love that face, very unusual. It feels a little early to plant here in Seattle, still chilly. All of my crocus have come up, however, which is always a delight. We were having a party the other night and my culinary garden looked so bare, I bought some herbs in clay pots and just placed them on the soil. I'll plant them when it warms up a little. I agree, digging in the soil and planting is just one of those basic level things that is satisfying and relaxing. I hope you are having a great weekend.

SO fabulous - all of them. I think when I have a few moments I'm going to have to come back and have a little pinning session!1

We received more snow overnight so thank you for the spring pictures Teresa. I can't wait to get back into the soil and it won't be long now.

Enjoy your weekend!

Teresa...what a beautiful post! I am actually really looking forward to spring now though admittedly I was feeling a little jipped by not having a real big snow fall :( Oh well...next year. Nothing like finally getting to open up windows again and letting the rush of warm spring air fill the house, smelling the flowers, and seeing everyone come out of hibernation! Such beautiful images to remind us of whats ahead! Have a great weekend!

Nothing more lovely or relaxing than a beautiful garden. We live in a beautiful world. Thank you for sharing these lovely images. Working in the yard is something I definately enjoy and am looking forward to. Enjoy your weekend!

Beautiful photos! I am especially enamored with the outdoor room with the fireplace. Hope you have a great weekend!

Donna said...

Wonderful post!! With this unusually warm winter, I'm so ready for all the buds to bloom. I loved the first photo and all the gorgeous urns!!

Happy weekend!!

Christy said...

This post makes me want to go out in a beautiful garden right now, unfortunately it's raining here in South Carolina. The gardens and urns you featured are gorgeous!! Love the gate in the first photo!!!

Have a great weekend!

Oh my gosh, I love the outdoors. Cannot wait to get outside and start planting again. Don't you just love manicured, swept clean, garden areas?
With vines? I do I do I do. Great post, Teresa.
