Come on the Garden Tour with me!

Today I went on the local garden tour.  I love going through other peoples' gardens and when they let me take all the photos I want, I get to take you all along with me!  I live in a Zone 3, borderline Zone 4 area.

This is not a wordy post, but very photo heavy - and I didn't even include every garden.

Enjoy the 2012 Kimberley Tour de Fleurs Garden Tour!




Garden fence designed and built by the owner - isn't it awesome??







I had to include this - it's the elementary school's greenhouse, isn't it adorable?














Hope you all enjoyed the tour!  Have a happy week!

Oh Anne! I loved the porch with the comfy furniture. The KG Green House, the green wall with the empty pots and the vintage looking screen door, the stacked stones, the cool dresser....and then I lost track.. Looks like you had a great tour. Thanks for taking me along.

Oh man, can't wait to turn my yard of weeds into a beautiful oasis.

Absolutely heavenly!

One has to attempt gardening in order to appreciate the time, patience and rewards you get from it; me, I'm have no patience.

What a great tour and next time I see a garden tour event coming up, I will definitely consider going. Thanks Anne.

Absolutely Breath taking ...Great job in capturing Life's little outside pleasures.. I really love the White fence with the Purple flower insert The owner did an awesome job...:)

I wish I could have gone on this tour with you!! I love so many things. Where to start...the green house is just precious (recycled bottles?? It's hard to tell), I love the patio spaces, the old screen door is exactly the one I'm on a hunt for and the flowers are breath taking. Great photos!!!

Such a lush garden. I'm doing good to keep stuff alive this year. So enJOYed the tour of your garden. Wonderful job!

Shirley said...

These are absolutely lovely gardens! Thanks for sharing and providing inspiration. I am moving to a new house in a few weeks and will be totally re-landscaping. I am looking forward to it immensely. When we sold this home, our realtor told us that the landscaping was the showpiece of the property. The house is nice too! I'm glad all our love and hard work came across so well.

Thanks for visiting The Gardening Life. Yes, all is well, though the town of Cardston estimates $7 million dollars in damages thus far. That sum is likely low. It seems to be a season of storms and tornados in our province!

What a gorgeous garden tour. After what our landscapers did to my hydrangeas (you can read about that in the post before my party) it is nice to see a beautiful garden. Thanks for sharing at DIYbyDesign.

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Oh, wow! So much inspiration in your photos! There were so many things I really liked, but my favorite had to be the school's greenhouse. That's because I used to teach elementary students!

What a wonderful garden tour. Each garden was prettier than the next. I loved the school greenhouse with the murals on the side and the garden fence with the flower gate. Lovely photography.

Hello my friend ... I am so late in going through the links this time. Have been slammed with some pillow orders (not that I'm complaining) ... but ... well, blogging takes a back seat sometimes to Etsy!

So happy to see you at our color party!

Thanks for taking us on the garden tour with you :-) So many pretty gardens & outdoor spaces - and I love the pile of stacked rocks :-) There's an art rock artist here in Ottawa who creates tons of balanced stones in the Ottawa River every summer. So cool :-)
