31 Days of Garden Tours - Day 17


Today, I'll share the third and final post about Dolly Wolf's garden in Melbourne, Florida.  Today, you'll get to see her two koi ponds.  As we left the lake area, we walked along decorated pathways toward the house.  




Then, we came upon the firepit and sitting area.  This was such a nice spot.  It must be very pretty at night, with the white lights twinkling.  Don't you love the swing and the antique windows?



I love this glass artwork, and think I can make one for my garden.  I have an old window like this.



Closer to the house are the two ponds.  This is the larger of the two which is a 9000 gallon koi pond, with a five-foot waterfall and a stone-slab bridge.





This rocking bench was so alluring.  If only we had time to sit and enjoy these beautiful, serene still waters.

Below is the smaller pond, which is closest to the house.  The colorful koi artwork hangs on the back wall of the house.



It has a small, bubbling fountain.


One last, lingering look at a lovely, creative backyard.  And yet, there was more to see on the way out.



Such as the pottery dragonflies above, and the glass artwork below.



Dolly has more of her creations everywhere.  On stepping stones in the walkway.


And this six-foot long gecko, hanging on the side of the house by the driveway.


If you look closely, you see even more delights.


This nice lizard came to say goodbye.  I know he's happy to live in such an interesting yard.  

Tomorrow, we'll go beachside, and visit another lovely garden.  I hope you'll come back by, Gail-Friends.
