The first garden was obviously a labor of love, belonging to Mary Monfort. Set in an ordinary mid century neighborhood, it greeted us with sunny color in the front yard.
I love these daisies!
The Asiatic lilies were gorgeous.
A very cool plant stand holding pots of succulents that don't require much watering.
Through the garden gate at the side of the house we entered a large back yard centered with a waterfall, stream, and pond, all hand dug. This is a garden created by the owner/gardener, not a landscape designer. I like that.
Lots of folks have found places in their yards for small vegetable plots this year.
Mary's garden contains many wonderful Japanese maples.
Mary commented from her perch on high.
Along the other side of the house.
We enjoyed our tour of this garden very much.
