Hidden Garden Tour

Hello my friends,
yesterday I had such a fun time attending the "Hidden Garden Tour"
 with some of my friends. 
 
It's always held the first weekend in June and yesterday's tour was one of the best they've had in years!
 
I thought I'd share a few photos from some of my favorite gardens.  But first I have to share this photo.
(not that I love the photo of me, but sure do love cute Saydee)!
And my Jupiters Beard is just gorgeous this year.  Maybe it will help take your eyes off of me.  (wink)
 
 
 I was babysitting our little granddaughter, Saydee for a few days; so I took her along with us.  She saw my hat sitting on the table ready for when we headed out the door, and asked, "Grammy, do you have a hat for me?"  I told her to go see what she could find in the dress up closet.  She came down with this one and 
kept it on most all day.  You can imagine that she got lots of compliments from other garden loving ladies!
 
 
The very first garden we toured had to be my favorite!  It was filled with lots of fun and whimsy.  Like this horse trailer painted red and an old wagon wheel.  It's no surprise that this red loving gal
was smitten!

 
 
 The chippy red pot housing that pretty pink rose had me swooning as well.
 
 
Fun signage on the side of one of their buildings.

 
This scale amongst the daisies is just WEIGH cute!  :)

 
Look at the size of that Peony.

 
 Saydee wanted a picture by this old building.
 
Now on to another pretty garden.  This one was much more formal, but so lovely!
 



There was literally a carpet of moss underneath two arbors.
 

 
Saydee found a garden friend.

 
There were water features in many of the gardens.  This was one of my favorites.  Just made you want to linger.



And of course we had to take this picture.  The roses matched Saydees's hat.  She even told me so.  Not the same shade of pink, but pink none the less.
 

 
Hope you enjoyed these gardens as much as I did!
hugs,
Jann
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:

I have enjoyed my walk through the gardens. Your Saydee looks so pretty in that oh-so-chic hat. Love that red horse trailer. I wouldn't mind one of those myself.

What great gardens, and your little assistant is a doll baby! I love Saydee in all her pictures (with you too, Grandma!). Even though my garden is traditional, I love all the chippy stuff too!

Bernideen said...

Dear Jann:
I loved all the photos but have to say I loved the fun and whimsy one. My garden is definitely headed in that direction these days!

Jeanie said...

I agree that the whimsical garden was really the must fun and creative, but really, they were all so very beautiful.

And so is Ms. Saydee! What a fun time to share together!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

What a fun time. Grandgirls are so sweet! Love the hats.

Susie said...

Jann, Please tell Saydee that I think she is the prettiest flower in the garden. I loved her hat. She may grow up to be a gardener. I could not believe how big that peony was. My gosh. Thanks for taking us along on the tour. You looked fabulous in your hat too. :) Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Oh Jan, I have an old blue horse trailer just like the red one at the farm cottage! What a great idea! Also just thought more storage in that thing!! We always need that! I can't believe its been sitting in the field and i could have been using it!! Thanks so much for sharing!

Thinking of you... Hugs, Roxy

Connie said...

Dear Jann & Saydee, your garden tour was loads of fun! How nice that you were having this time to visit with each other and enjoy the sunshine. Saydee certainly knows how to pick a lovely hat and she looks so pretty in it.
Have a lovely week.
Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

Pamela Gordon said...

These gardens are both beautiful even though so very different. I think Sadee is adorable in her vintage hat and I like your hat as well. Have a great week Jann.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

What a lovely walk, Jann. Love the roses and Saydee's hat does match the roses! I'm sorry you had trouble linking up. I really don't know what the problem is. You and Mimi are the only two that have mentioned it. I tried to get some answers from InLinkz but so far, haven't heard back from them. I guess we'll wait and see. Hope you're having a lovely June so far.

Blessings,
Sandi

Daniela said...

Your little granddaughter is far too sweet, my lovely Jann, and the gardens you've visited are all stunning, thanks most sincerely for sharing such beauty !

Enjoy the remainder of your week, sweet friend,
sending blessings of joy to you !

Always so very grateful

Xx Dany

She is just adorable!!

Nellie's Cozy place said...

Hi Jann,

Saydee is such a lil cutie.......aren't grands just the best, if I would
have known how much fun they were, we would've had them first!! lol
Course, I have to say I had a lot of fun with my kiddos too, but having
grands just takes the pressure off of the whole parenting thing.

All these roses have many swoony, I just love roses, but anymore so many
have no fragrance which is heartbreaking....

Have a lovely Friday and weekend,
Blessings, Nellie
