“And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed…
…The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it”
Genesis 2:8, 15
If you have been following our everyday living, you may remember that last spring we took on a major project…we turned our back yard space into a garden! And oh how we love it! (You can see inspiration for our garden here and the big reveal here) We own almost 15 acres, mostly pasture, and we had wanted to do this for a couple of years. We finally took our ideas and dreams to a landscaper…and within a few weeks our garden took shape! He installed pavers, built the focal point, and planted zoysia and foundational plants. Then it was Butch’s turn…he installed the picket fence that we’ve always wanted! With springtime upon us, we are making plans to add color and variety with lovely annuals and perennials! Last week we planted sunflowers behind the back of the fence along with our tomatoes, squash, and okra! I can hardly wait to sit in the garden, surrounded by sunflowers, and eat farm-to-table, alfresco style!
While browsing around for ideas, I found this garden that would inspire any novice gardener like myself…and it is truly a dream! But of course, the upkeep would require a full-time gardener and lots of money! But, these are great ideas for the DIY’ers like us! So, let this garden relax you as we tour….and just maybe you will find some ideas for yours!

The rustic arbor and gate adds charm to the Tudor-style home!
We planted sunflowers last week as a backdrop to our small garden space. I love this fence!
What about you? Do you have a garden? What are you planting this year?
