Air Conditioners: Before & After

If you have an eyesore put a focal point nearby.  

2 weeks ago Susanne Hudson & I created a garden/porch for the Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival.

Our garden beliefs: simple, historic, focal points, axis, comfort, beauty & simplest.

 We pride ourselves on how little we can put in a garden.

We bought very little for our display garden.  Breezing thru with what we already own.  Proving our beliefs in what we created.
Garden & Be Well,   XO Tara

Nurseries don't like Susanne or me.  They want to sell you annuals & perennials, mostly.  Many independent garden centers have been slammed in this economy and are gone.   I know why.  They forgot gardens are what people want intuitively, from their soul.  Without knowing it, most people are intuitive gardeners/designers.  What they don't trust, within themselves, is the counterintuitive skillset garden design demands.

Hi Tara,
I've neglected reading my blogs lately. So glad I sat down today to do so. Penny McHenry was a good friend of mine. Her wedding present to me was 10 of her famous hydrangeas. Her son is a friend of mine. I was so glad to read about this festival, which I learned about from your blog!

That's inspiring. It's so honest. Surprisingly, there's lots to look at, even though you say you kept it simple and used what you had.

Okay, ignorant question...are those "outdoor" curtains..the reason why I asked is because I recently put some up and wondered if they were different, then say "shower" curtains....
