Beatrix Potter Garden Tour. . . House #3

I have been to the final home in the tour four or five times.

Each time it NEVER fails to amaze me!

The homeowner, Tonya has darling eye candy tucked here and there throughout her garden.

Welcome to her Perennial Gardens.

Gotta warn you, I took alot of pictures here.  I'm certain that if you bear with me you'll see that they won't disappoint.

One of the things I love most is her out buildings.  I could just settle into any one of them and be as happy as a Lark.

Oh, and what treasures we will find inside.

A boudoir fit for a queen.

This pergola is so filled in with foliage. I love it!

LOOK, not just one; but three chandeliers! It has all the comforts of home.

What an ideal spot for her two love doves and their three day old baby.

This is Tonya.  She told us that she had just recently converted it into her potting shed.

This makes chandelier number four. A girl can never have too many chandeliers!

Another building and, you guessed it; more chandeliers!

Let's take a peek inside, shall we?

This lady pays attention to detail in every corner.  See what I mean, eye candy!

One might think that this is all that could possibly be in this garden.  But NO, there's more.

This lady is such an inspiration to me.  I don't have as large of an area, but I hope to make a few more outdoor rooms. I want my garden to feel just as cozy.

As I was leaving I snapped a pic of the front of her home.

Just as warm and inviting as her garden, wouldn't you agree?

Long post, I agree. And I didn't even get pics of her chickens and coop.  If you have a passion for gardening, as do I.  You won't mind a bit.

Happy Gardening!

Hi Jann...

Ohhh...what an awesome garden tour, my friend! I'm so glad that you invited us along for the tour! Wow...what a fabulous place! I just can't imagine all the time and work that this took but it's delightful! What I loved best was...that there seemed to be a secret little treasure everywhere I looked! Ohhh..and I loved that pretty pink teapot and teacup! And...all of those gorgeous chandeliers! You're absolutely right...a girl can never have too many chandys! Hehe! Loved each and every one of your beautiful photos...thank you!!!
