A Garden is in Your Future

Last Fourth of July my Mom, sister and I took a trip to Savannah, Georgia. On the night we arrived the riverfront hotel had free wine and cheese. After a couple drinks, we tipsily walked down the river street and made our way through crowds and quaint shops. On our walk we decided to stop into a psychic...just a "ha wouldn't this be funny!" moment. This was an abnormal thing for us, but the read was pretty interesting. The "psychic" told me, among other things, that I would always live near water. Of course we all screamed LAKE HOUSE!! In a past post I mentioned it was my family's dream to one day own a lake house.

So, what does a garden have to do with all this? Today I remembered the words of the psychic, laughed, and became my own psychic. In my future house I see a beautiful garden with fresh flowers, herbs, and veggies. For now, I daydream with these garden inspirations from Marie Claire Maison. What's in your future?


Future LAKE HOUSE?!?! Please sir.

i LOVE that second pic that looks like it leads to a home in a secret garden. oh, one day...

and that tiny colored shack in the end is a cutie too. though it would have to be in a warm weather area for me :)

mary said...

Gorgeous! I dream of a little courtyard-type backyard like this. We've got the "little" part down...;)

Great images.

Krissy said...

That last pic is GREAT!!! Sums it up nicely..

Funny that I took a break from online shopping for a railing planter just like the ones in the first photo! I wish I could find some :)

no. really? no.

I did the same thing in Savannah, Georgia, when we were walking down the river front. We probably went to the same person!! Well, maybe : )

I dream of reuniting with a long lost love, living in a cabin by the beach, with nobody around.

Oh, to dream.

Those are neat planters...hmm...not sure where to get them? If I come across will let you know Krissy.

So weird you saw a psychic there too...just seemed like the thing to do! I love your dream.

You just gave me a serious case of garden envy.

How about tromp le'oil gardens? Where they look huge but are teeny tiny?

How pretty...I wish a garden was in my NEAR future but not until we buy a home, I'm not putting the money into a rental! It's funny, because I've been thinking of gardens & landscaping a lot lately!!

Diana - these are fabulous! The second one pictured is so beautiful - that's what I'd like to see in my future patio!

Abbey Goes Design Scouting said...

I'm obsessed with these!!!! Lovely post!

JLC Studio said...

Beautiful pictures!! I see owning my very own place with a yard and a garden in my future as well...here's to hoping at least :)

Melissa Lewis - Off The Wall said...

These are great pictures. I am currently working on my own garden, slowly but surely... it's coming!

Robin said...

Lovely gardesn, if one of those is in my future I'll take it!

I once went to a tarot card reader who was part of the entertanment at a big corporate party in New Orleans. I thought it was fun and silly, and wrote down her predictions and tucked them away. I found them when I moved about 8 years later and realized most of them were dead on. Freaky!

SimplyGrove said...

I love all of these pictures!! Its all about the outdoors for me right now!

kosenrufu mama said...

i love these gardens......

Fiesta Lady said...

I can't stand it!!!!!!!!!
I want THAT.

janine de waal said...

these are GORGEOUS! I also LOVE gardens but live in an apartment. But one day I will have a forest for a garden!!! ; )

The Lil Bee said...

Diana, these gardens are STUNNING. I adore all of them, especially the one up top with the door and all the ivy. These are the images that actually make me consider leaving the city.

diana @ please sir said...

Crazy about the predictions from the tarot card reading. She also told me one day I will start a business and have twins...ekkk!

I have a rental too, and don't want to put much effort into my tiny porch. But, looks like some of these could be pulled off on city porches.
