Originally posted on Garden Walk Garden Talk: Enough of my garden, welcome to Canterbury Lane. It is an acre and a half of pure staycation. Why would anyone want to travel when you have this beauty and creativity at home?…
Let’s help the little kids get a playground by purchasing Yankee Candles and products from the new awesome holiday catalog. Vienna Baptist Church in Pfafftown, NC is having a fundraiser to help build a playground on their property. Vienna reaches out to their community with events throughout the year that benefit the children who live in the neighboring areas. VBC supports a back to school bash and backpack project. VBC would like to have a playground that suits children preschool through elementary.
I’d like to get these icicles to make my tree smell like cinnamon.
More beautiful front porches, entryways, and exterior home makeovers can be found by searching the drop down menu on my sidebar. Especially beautiful is the topic..Wilmington. You’ll see loads of old homes with lots of charm.
When framed correctly like the photo above, a red door can become a formal focal point. Add to that this flower hedge border on the sidewalk and you’ve got a winning entry combination. The two topiary planters are just icing on the cake don’t you think?
It just gets better with the black wrought iron window boxes, shutters, and stained glass accents around the red door. An American flag adds that cozy neighborhood feeling which is becoming lost these days. Sad that folks don’t realize how much our great flag can add to the landscaping. Would this be as charming without it?
Ferns, a touch of red, and the inner courtyard with the meandering walkway are most certainly setting off the ornate pattern in the fence.
Peering beyond the fence we see a hedge and subtle presence of the red impatiens. All drawing your eye to the fountain beyond.
Thank you for all the kind messages. I’m recuperating and will be back in late spring I hope. I am taking longer to recuperate than I had originally anticipated. My facebook page is temporarily down also until I can keep up better. I continue to improve every day. It is baby steps but it is improvement.
