Annual Mother's Day Garden Tour Part IV

And so begins the fourth and final installment of the Mother's Day Garden Tour pictures.

The next house we visited had an arbor at the sidewalk and some lawn as pathways.

The gate to the backyard had some impressive heft to it.

I was told that everything planted in this yard was edible except for the lawn.

I'm always intrigued by the methods people use to edge their lawns and separate it from their beds.

I was with touring with an architect who didn't like this back porch/stair case at all.  I was enamored with it though.  I'd probably try growing several plants in pots along the way.  I'd love to see some cascading plants way up there.

Even the bunny is edible . . .

But that feast will be saved for another day, I guess.

The last house on the tour was a "white and grey" garden as far as the plantings were concerned but the pool really dominated the scene and the white and grey was more of an accent I thought.

I really liked this container.

And I appreciated some of these touches:

This bacopa planted window box will just look better and better as the summer progresses.

That's all for this year.  Thanks for coming along.
