GARDEN BLOGGERS BLOOM DAY - seriously beautiful

Today I had the privilege of having a private tour of an absolutely beautiful garden by a friend of mine, who happens to be the landscape architect behind the design.   

These are simply some photos I snapped with my iphone to share with you all for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

If only I could share the gorgeous scents wafting about the yard on the warm breeze, some familiar some exciting and new...the buzzing of the bees...

    1. Thanks, but I can take no credit here, these are a friend's garden. All I did was tour around with a gin & tonic and my camera. :)

  8. Great capture of a lovely garden. Fragrance can't be captured; it must be experienced. I hope everybody plants something with delicious scent.
