The Medearis Garden

It's always fun to visit a new garden, or new to us anyway.  Maggie and Myron have almost an acre to manage, and within that big space them have some lovely gems.
 The front of the house does not announce what is to be found in the back.  Yep, a swimming pool!




 There is an interesting mosaic in the pool surround. 
 Walk through the gate to the "back forty".

 There you find an outdoor summer room on the edge of a large meadow play area. 



 And even a bed, thought perhaps not for sleeping. 
Thanks, Medearis's, for opening your garden for the first time.  We enjoyed our visit.

  12. My favorite spot in this garden is the old painted wagon wheel and rooster. The plants in front blend so pretty. Maybe I could do something like that with our old ragged wagon wheel.
