Your flowers are stunning, I love pretty gardens where you can go pick a fresh bouquet of flowers all the time!


your garden is amazing!!
gosh... I would have to say my roses are my fave..then my peonies..My roses are doing poorly..I really must find the time and get out and give my garden much needed tlc..
I have actually tried to grow pink & blue hydrangea but they died on me..for some reason all I can grow are the big white ones! They look like wonderful snow balls..
hope you feel better soon.

OMG Chris - I am on my way to visit your garden LOL It is so peaceful and I love all the green! I am sitting in a garden void. I have a few plants in the front bed and my fountain but everything seems insignificant - I know with time it will fill in but really looks subpar at the moment :~( Thanks for such lovely garden inspiration - wanna fly out here and help a girl out?!

Your garden is absolutely fabulous! How lucky you are, and obviously how talented, to create such a heaven on earth!


Hi Chris,
So sorry about the poison ivy, I myself have never had it but understand it can be quite miserable. Girl your talent just shines in that garden, amazing.

P.S. I have missed you!!


Chris....Your garden & whole area is goreous!!! I LOVE LOVE it!! What an amazing job you have done! I myself have 3 endless summe hydrangea's & they are truly goregous!!!! 2 are whitish pink & the other one is bright purple...I also love my Wisterias...2 of them in the front & I so love the smell!

Your garden is so beautiful!! Love the little house in the background it looks perfect. My favorite flowers are the rose and hydranga. I just wish my yard looked like your!

Your yard and garden are absolutely stunning. I am amazed that you find the time to tend to tour own garden when you are so busy bringing beauty to others.

Hi Chris!
I just am back from my week in Naples and had to come visit you! Your gardens are beautiful! I just love everything about them. Did I tell you that when I was in Italy in April, we went to Assisi and visit St. Franscis's tomb? What a humbling experience....

Hope your poisen ivy is all gone by now.


Your garden is truly beautiful! Love the bunny birdbath!

Have a blessed and wonderful day!

Chris, you garden is looking so beautiful. It's a treat to sit or work there, I'm sure. I hope the poison ivy is gone by now, poor girl.
Happy summer!

Hello my friend Chris!
Your gardens are gorgeous!!!! I have hydrangeas, blue and climbing that are not blooming at all...I need your green thumb! They are my favorite! Maybe I have to move to the ocean; the flowers always do so well in salt air! LOL! I hope I can see them for real soon!!!!
