A bit of blue for Monday...and a bit of the Garden Tour..
I love anything with birdies on it..
Every home needs touches of blue even if it isn't your color. Blue and white..gorgeous!
These are on my daughters fireplace..
There is no telling how long this tile has been on this old fireplace as the home is VERY old.
This is my daughters fireplace. Next Monday..I will post my own blue's. We both love the touches of it in our homes.
This was the first house on the Home Garden Tour. Lovely. This was the beginning of our tour and they hosted the luncheon.
Everyone needs a garage for their cars? Of course. I knew that!
They provided us this nice shady place to eat lunch. Be careful. The place was loaded with gopher holes!
They also provided a shuttle that drove you up the VERY long drive and through the gate. One woman fell full length as she walked through the gates. I think she had walked up the drive and was worn out. She was about my age but she said she was alright. I stopped taking my pictures...not a good time to be snapping photo's of my surroundings.
My friend, Mary and I decided to walk down the drive back to our car, and along the way we came upon this interesting tree. It was NOT a bush but a very large tree. I had never seen anything like before and neither had Mary. Does anyone know what kind of tree, or overgrown shrub it is? Orange and white blossoms. Just beautiful!
~FIRST GARDEN ON TOUR~
This home was an older refurbished one in the downtown area of old Riverside. On our tour map we found it on Orange St. Not the best neighborhood, but the house and garden were interesting.
This old car was parked in the gravel drive in front of the house..and I thought it sort of a nice touch. Different. The man that owned the home was warm and welcoming.
I thought the front porch was cute. Many paint colors which is what they used to do.
Neat as a pin. Colorful and cute.
Lots of work went into this home and garden.
Lots and lots of detail. The little sign hanging on the garden gate said "My garden was in bloom yesterday. You missed it!"
You could tell this garden was private and not really intended for public viewing as there were no signs identifying the different plants. I recognized some..many I did not.
I loved the use of the rocks through out this little area.
More on this garden tomorrow. Believe me it gets better..
Love and smiles this lovely Monday! No time to be blue..enjoy!
