On Saturday, I went to a free garden tour in Norcross featuring four residences and a plant sale. It was a bright sunny day, and I was beginning to feel the heat of summer. Luckily, I still managed to get some good pictures even with intense noon-day sunlight. The gardens were wonderful, and beautifully made-up for the tour. One common feature throughout all four that helped them stand out above other gardens was the use of embellishment and detail. Colorful pots, unique hardscape, statues, fountains and fun whimsical elements helped light up the gardens. The plants weren’t that bad either.
First up was a corner lot. The outdoor living space and most of the garden, including a large vegetable garden, were located in the front and side yard which I loved. It used the space well, and I enjoyed the more open and public feel.
The second garden had a lovely southern woodland feel. All the trees had been limbed up to allow for filtered rather than dense shade.
This is enough for one post: more will be coming!
