Stop number one:
This gal is her eighties and takes care of the cutest garden! She does most of the work with some help from family for the bigger projects.
A wonderful stone house with the gardens at its feet.
Lots of statuary, including this gigantic fountain.
The entrance to her gardens surrounded by bee-you-tee-ful blue hydrangeas!
Cute nooks tucked throughout.
A peek between the arborvitae.
And she manages this!
Stop number two:
Fannie is a personal friend of mine - they've got a lovely view of a valley behind their house!
They turned this location in what was a swimming pool into this beautiful sitting area!
Stop number three:
A gardening friend:
By now, it was heading fast towards dark but I love this picture...the gorgeous hydrangea, the stone house, the husbands chatting on the porch and the flag - so picturesque of our country!
