Yep, I’m still suffering from jet-lag and cannot quite get on a schedule during our visit to Germany. Adjusting to a 9 hour time difference is kicking my “Po Po.” So I thought I’d share a few pictures of my mother-in-law’s garden with you. Here is where I left off the other day…
This is the view into my mother-in-law’s garden from her sun room. Once you open the sliding doors, you step into a perfectly manicured garden full of lush green shrubs, precisely trimmed hedges and thoughtfully placed decorations. In other words…the woman can garden! I will let these snapshots speak for themselves.
I wasn’t joking when I said the hedges are precisely trimmed.
The pictures are a bit blown-out, but all I wanted was to be outside the other day. It was a perfect Spring day, plus I had the house all to myself.
I swear I could not find ONE weed! Frustrating.
Looking at the clay tile roofs always reminds me when I lived in Las Vegas. Clay tiles and concrete are typical choices for roofs in Germany.
I just love this and think the idea is genius. She secured several decorative plant hooks to the house, tied sisal rope around each then wound her vines around the rope to create a natural looking trellis. Once in full bloom, the vines cascade down the side of the house.
Gorgeous, isn’t it? It makes me want to rip everything out of my own backyard and start all over.
