A SECRET GARDEN


 This backyard garden was on a tour I recently took to Kosiusko, Ms. I love the beautiful entry gate that goes into this sunken garden.


Wow this is Pepto Bismol pink, but it is perfect for this shady garden and adds a fun element to the slightly formal setting. I love it!I am joining http://www.fishtailcottage.blogspot.com for Cottage Flora Thursday and http://www.tootsietime.blogspot.com  for Fertilizer Friday.

Love the gate. I have always wanted a gated garden. Ran out of money, maybe in my next life. Love the pink chairs, adds some fun. Thanks, Richard, from My Old Historic House.

A scrolled entry gate into a sunken garden - heaven! The pink chairs set off the pink blooms very well. What a fun tour that must have been.

I love the pink chairs, and I may unashamedly steal the idea when I replace the Adirondack chairs in my main rose garden ... the former one was sage green, and I now think that a pop of pink may be just what this spot needs.

Thanks for sharing this secret garden, how I'd love to sit and drink in the tranquility there.
I have a friend that has decorated her whole backyard in the same shade of pink and also uses lots of pots of pink impatiens. It might not be for everyone, but I like the effect and it brightens her shady garden as well.

I love garden tours...and now I am wanting some pretty pink chairs. Love those.

Me, too...could eat Lemon Curd right out of the jar with a spoon.:)))

Wow, a very lovely garden and the gate is beautiful. However, the chairs are a little too pink for me. I can see them near a lake or beach but not in my back yard. Your previous post shows the shows your artful nature. Peace

I agree with Lady Di Tn...that gate is gorgeous! I wqould love to have some chairs like that in red! Reminded me of Bubble gum...not Pepto Bismo. :)
