Garden Tour

I'm spending the weekend at a friend's house and she kindly said I could show you her small front garden.
Her husband designed this garden as a quiet tranquil place to relax in.




There are beautiful rocks, pebbles as ground cover and little bushes here and there.



A lovely fish pond surrounded by large rocks and boulders is the centre piece. The birds came in and took some of the fish ...so now the pond is netted to protect them.



                                                         I love this part of the garden



                            Little hidden rustic contemplation area and another lovely rock grouping



This whole garden is sunken and feels secluded even though it is in the front of the house with a street going past



                                            Light and statue by the pool and stepping stones



                                        More garden art under a bush with pebbles and rocks



Another shaded seating area with lighting so you can enjoy the evening watching the fish and relaxing



I think this garden is charming and relaxing. It has a feeling of peace and tranquility about it.

Hope you enjoyed visiting,
Have a good week
