Hidden Garden Surprise
Every year for my birthday my mom takes me to see a benefit tour through gardens of local people in our community who have graciously agreed to let perfect strangers walk through their yards. Every year is different and every year we have a great time wandering through beautiful yards and getting inspiration for our own yards at home. The committee that puts this together is a really talented bunch and work really hard to find hidden gems that are exciting and inspirational.
My absolute favorite garden actually included the inside of the home of Lynde Mott. In fact, before we had even gotten out of our car, I had a really good feeling that I would love this stop. Here is what we saw as we pulled up.
Not only was her garage so wonderful, but her front entry porch was another sign that we were in for a treat!
Much of the surfaces of her beautiful home were embellished or adorned with some form of decoration. Every room had personal touches that really made each space so beautiful!
