Garden Tours with Photos

Had my driver and my camera this weekend for viewing The Garden Conservancy - Open Days in Dallas this past Saturday.

Find a tour near you.

Viewed the homes a little out of order as we started from North Dallas. First one for us was the Herndon home.

The weather turned a little on us first thing in the morning. A light mist was in the air as we began our tour. Alas, making my photos are a little darker.

Beautiful fireplace to enjoy next to a stream
and waterfall they have created.

Lovely way to "screen" the view of the electrical panel.

The wildlife (and I) love this habitat.

Through this doorway to another garden room.

Over a lovely running stream lined with bamboo
and lanterns to this private area.

Return to get a closer look at the stone work in the "back yard".
These folks removed their pool and replaced it with a beautiful koi pond.

"Good morning!"

This bench sits out by the front door.

Where they enjoy this view to the street. Lovely.

That is such a beautiful garden, I fell in love with all the stones. Loved the steps and the private seating areas and the pond. What a great way to deal with an old swimming pool. The screen idea is really unique, too.
