“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
2 Corinthians 5:17
With spring’s arrival, I’m thinking all things gardening! If you have followed our blog for very long, you know that we spend most of our warm evenings in our little haven! We are prepared, and the garden cleanup is finished…we are ready to put down new mulch and get the ball rolling! Although most of what you see here at Everyday Living in the way of gardens is ours, we have also made a few stops by several public gardens that were stunning! I have loved then all, but by far my favorites are the private gardens that are not open to the public…the ones that families enjoy and take care of themselves! We have been fortunate to peek “beyond the gates” in many cities, but one of my favorites is one that I visited last year in my very own city. It is so beautiful, I believe it deserves a second look! The home I will take you to today has a European feel and is set in a heavily wooded area. The long drive leading to the house is covered in a canopy of trees with rhododendron and oak leaf hydrangeas on either side. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and let’s take a peek!
As we entered the gardens in the back of the house, the hydrangeas were in bloom in front of a screened porch.
This area would be perfect for morning coffee while listening to the birds chirping.
