Garden Tour - Part 3

Today I am showing you the fourth garden on our garden tour.
If you missed the first two gardens you can see them here
and you can see the third garden here.

This was another yard that had no grass but was filled with
trees, shrubs and over 100 perennials.

The owners of this home moved in in the year 2000
and there was nothing in the yard.

They have created a beautiful oasis from scratch.

This was one of the neatest things I saw -
a mushroom water feature!

There were beautiful lilies blooming everywhere.

I loved what they did with this old piece of wood.

And the aroma from these climbing roses filled the yard with fragrance.

There was also a lovely water feature by the gazebo.
The cattails in the back are solar lights -
how cool is that :)

My daughter fell in love with all the color variations of lilies.

The mushrooms hiding in the barrel were a delightful surprise.

This natural looking birdhouse was wonderful.
We have a lot of wood in our yard so I think I will try making one.

And I loved the little accents in the pots by the front door.

Hope you enjoyed this fourth garden as much as we did!

  1. So pretty Alana - love the mushrooms - I've never seen that - wonder where they got them ( you should have asked, lol )


    1. You are so right! Unfortunately the owners weren't around :( I am assuming they got them from a local garden center as I saw quite a few items they had in their garden from there.

  2. Garden tours are such a wealth of inspiration and there are lots of great ideas that you singled out in this post. I want to do a bench under an arbor very much like the one you have shown here. Have a great weekend!

    1. I just love the look of the bench under the arbour!

  3. I love your cat tail lights and all your wonderful details. Great garden. Thanks for sharing with us.

  4. So pretty!! The mushroom fountain is fabulous!
    Have a great day!

    1. I thought so too :) and thanks for stopping by!

  5. I'm always envious of water features!

    Thanks for all you share!♥

    1. Me too! I hope we can put one in our yard soon.

  6. I'm just catching up on posts and must say your garden tour was fantastic, Alana!
    I love the brightness of your plants and all the features you have used.
    The barrel with the mushrooms was a delight!
    And your daughter's tablescape is beautiful - she did a great job!
    I love those hummingbird shakers.
    They are so pretty and made the whole setting look like a lovely garden!
    She is talented and has learned well from her mum, how to create a beautiful table.

  7. What a lovely garden. It's hard to believe how much they've accomplished. Someone certainly has a green thumb.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I agree. They must have spent hours to get their garden where it is today!

  8. Hi Alana, I love garden tours. I went on one in June and have not got around to sharing it yet. Hope to soon. The mushroom fountain is so unique. I enjoyed the tour.

    1. Aren't garden tours fun and such a great source for inspiration! Can't wait to see your garden tour :)

  9. I love the white flowers in the front door pots - very sweet!

  10. Enjoyed the tour, came by from Fishtail Cottage.

  11. What a unique and pretty garden, Alana! Those water features truly add so much beauty! :)
