When it moves outside it's a trend. Fabulous lanterns. First Rules of Landscape Design: copy, simplicity, repetition.
SENSUOUS, above. Crunch of gravel, trilling water, warmth of candle light, hearing refreshments poured from a pretty pitcher, feel of foliage upon your arm, repetition of color house-furniture-shutters-arbor-fountain-gravel, scale, flow, texture, vanishing threshold.
Beauty w/Low Maintenance in the garden is sensuous & feng shui.
Design, above, for yourself. Grace IS a destination.

That is such a cozy gorgeous space... I'd love to spend all night with friends at that table!

You set a beautiful table here, the only thing that would make it better is if the pretty pitcher was handmade pottery...but then again, I'm bias.
All kidding aside this is a very welcoming place. It looks perfect for entertaining or for an intimate encounter.

Ah, bliss! Love that photo! I could almost hear the water and crunch of gravel. Those lanterns: gorgeous.

I think you do gravel posts just for me.
