A Tuscany Garden

A couple weeks ago I got back from an amazing trip to Italy. We spent most of our time in this little garden for the villa we rented in Montisi. It was divine. 

What’s Blooming June 15 (or so)

I actually took these pictures yesterday morning but with all the Father’s Day activities I’m just now sharing. By the way, I’m on the bus so I can’t properly label the pictures. I apologize.

The pictures start in the veggie garden and move into perennial beds.

What’s Blooming May 15, 2012

My Garden Idea Board – Pinterest

If you’re not on Pinterest and you’re interested in joining, let me know and I’ll send you an invite. After all, you need to be invited to join – it’s exclusive. ;)

Here’s a link to my jardin (garden) board pictured below:
