Inspiration for a garden

I have to say my garden is not nearly this tidy. I admire very much the family that keeps this home looking as much as possible like its owner created. As anyone, who has a garden, knows-- gardens head toward chaos if not tended. This garden is lovingly tended. They invited any renters to weed but I didn't see a weed. Back or front garden, each showed balance, sense of humor and a love of nature.

During our only two full days in this rental we shared with you, I painted limiting how much I moved around and explored the various rooms of the garden. Remaining in just two locations I was treated to the well choreographed lighting first feauring one and then another plant or sculpture as the day passed from dawn to dusk. I definately want to go back.
