The next stop on the Secret Garden Tour is a Craftsman home built in 1926. It has been restored both inside and out. I love this style, especially the big covered porches.
The photo above is of the front of the home.
This is the side porch. We were invited inside to tour the home, but I'm going to leave that for another day when I do a series of posts about home tours.
The bush on the far right side of the side porch is a firecracker plant, I think. Again, I'm not the gardener in the family. I just enjoy and photograph them. This is the biggest firecracker plant I've ever seen.
Below if the rose garden with its unique cast-iron trellis.
I loved this area for bird watching. What a lovely spot to rest and relax in the evening.
The building on the left is a gardener's shed, and the one on the right is a guest cottage. The backyard is shady and cool.
This happy plant and birdhouse caught my eye. I liked it so much, I made a button from it, which is at the beginning of this post.
I'll leave you with this beautiful passion flower that was growing on the fence in the backyard.
I hope you'll stop by tomorrow for the next and final home on the Secret Garden Tour. After that, I'll take you on a completely different tour in southern Brevard County.
Blessings to you, Gail-Friends!
