31 Days of Garden Tours - Day 1

Greetings, Gail-Friends.  I'm excited about this series of posts.  I've visited several gardens, but hadn't gotten around to posting about them.  So, I'm glad you're here, and I hope you'll stop by every day in October to see the beauty I've planned for you.

The first tour is the Secret Garden Tour which was in the spring, in Titusville / Mims, Florida.

First stop was a delight, and the pond area is the first thing we saw as we entered the gate. This garden is huge and varied, so I'll be taking my time to show you each section.

These happy, brightly colored Adirondack chairs greeted us as we entered the gate. My friend, Betty, is the joyful lady on the far left.  We had so much fun that day.

The lovely owner of the home and garden, was so kind and gracious, answering the many questions of her guests.  She said when she designed this area, she wanted to feel as if she were on a cruise vacation.  It has that relaxed and comfortable feel, don't you think?

Don't you wish you were here, enjoying the shade and the koi pond?  There's a little bridge over the pond, and a waterfall beyond.

  Here is another view of the pond area, with the waterfall.

Her resident frog enjoyed the sunshine, and I think he was very interested in the visitors, too.

There is much more to see in this backyard, so be sure to stop back by tomorrow to see the vegetable garden.  The potting shed will make you drool.

Blessings to you!

  3. Gail,
    Welcome to Thought-Provoking Thursday! I loved the topic of your series. Right now, I am cooped up inside an office with no windows, so your pictures helped bring me a bit of sunshine.
