Last June I attended a local garden tour. One particular garden was my favorite, Talk about eye candy around every corner. It said ‘WELCOME’ from the moment you arrived.
It was an older home with so much character.
As we walked around to the gardens we passed cozy vignettes.
Love that red side door!
She had an old outbuilding filled with wonderful treasures!
Her back yard was a blooming paradise! The arbor in the center lead to her cutting garden.
She had one plant that I have been yearning for ever since. The Foxtail Lily.
The Foxtail Lily is a majestic plant that is gorgeously statuesque. I remember having one, just one in my Highland garden that did not come back the second year. This garden had these beauties in so many wonderful colors! I have been wanting to order some for my garden. I am a bit slow because after looking on the computer I am finding that the color varieties are sold out. I guess I only get yellow this year. Do any of you have these lovlies in your garden? she had them in the numbers. Grouped together they made such a statement!
These next pics are of more of her wonderful blooms. She said that she hand waters it every day and it takes her hours. Well worth the effort don’t you think?
These are some of her fun garden treasures. I love all the white!
I think this was one of my favorites. I love how this little steppable plant is growing through this box. Perfect place for a faux bird to nest.
My sweet friend, Amanda knows the owner of this garden. She is a very generous lady that will share any start except her Foxtail lilies. Can’t say as I blame her.
Cottage gardening is my favorite. I can’t wait until my garden is full of lush blooms! I spent 6 hrs. in the garden yesterday. It excites me so much to see things popping up all around! It’s coming along well, nothing as fantastic as this, but sure hope I can get my hands on of a few of those Fox Tails!
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
I will be sharing this wonderful garden with:
