Garden Gawkers #9 - Delightfully Inspiring Garden Shed

Oh what a treat I have for you today!
This is the charming backyard of the home I showed you in yesterday's post.
It was an eyeful in every direction.
The garden has many layers, like it has grown over the years.
They continued the colors from the front gardens in back.
Very dramatic chartreuse green, black and hot pinks.
There were ample places to sit and enjoy the garden.
I loved all the curves and corners.
This potting bench under the shade tree was perfect.
The choice of black for the shed was surprising.
But somehow it works perfectly.
The garden is low, so they have water issues.
But this is a wonderful solution.
A dry creek bed is just beautiful.
And the bridge and arbor is lovely.
A close up of the simple work area.
The gardener loves whimsical pieces.
There was several scattered about this garden.
Like I said yesterday, I was so taken by the hydrangeas.
Everything was in peak bloom.
It seems we visited on the perfect Sunday in June.
But I have to say, I fell in love with the shed.
The vintage door was the kicker.
Just perfect!

Okay, there is one more post about this garden...
And the star of it is another vintage door.
Just wait till you see what they have done with it!

See you tomorrow!
