Garden Tour was awesome this year. Sometimes we aren’t so lucky. I remember one year being pregnant, and walking around in 90 degree weather. There was nowhere to relieve my bladder (every 5 minutes) and some of the garden ladies were, shall I say a little “stuffy”. I can’t forget that year, nope. And I wasn’t impressed with any of the gardens either. But this year….oh this year. Farmington Country Club. One word, wow. The thing I enjoyed most about the homes we toured was that the majority of them were all painted or white washed brick. I love painted brick homes....
I was very impressed with this room. This home actually consisted of an Architect who was married to a Landscape Architect. Her theme was white, blue, and pink plants. And I must say, she executed it very well! When they bought the place, it had a 5 car garage attached to an indoor swimming pool. But they ripped that up to install her dream garden….which turned into this.
Beautiful right? I know, if I had my way, out of all the gardens I had seen up to this point, mine would look the exact same way. Supreme taste. And great color palette. Well done!
Here are just a few more highlights from the tour….
You can’t tell in the picture, but we were wearing matching shoes:)
Unique floral arrangements…
More fabulous containers….
Taking a break…we did a lot of walking on the first day.
Four generations of women on their sixth year on garden tour together. We are gonna keep this tradition going for as long as we can!
This property was pretty amazing too, belonged to Carl Smith. And if you’re familiar with Charlottesville at all, you probably know who he is. This happens to be one of my husband’s properties too. They sure do a great job….
More of the containers there…my my, so very very nice...
Somebody may have had her fill of me taking her photo all day….
But it was all in good fun…
because I know we had a blast and that’s all that counts!
Looking forward to next year :0)
