Hennie's garden

It was not hard to picture how beautiful Hennie's garden is at the peak of the gardening season. She had a magazine article laying out written about her B&B with photos which you can see above. Even at the end of the season, the garden is very pretty.

She has created many areas to sit and the garden is full of surprising and hidden corners which are full of 'brocante'.

This area actually looks like yet another room in the house as it has a simple, little roof that was built over it.



Enamelware becomes art when grouped together on an old and weathered cupboard!





We enjoyed sitting out in the garden enjoying the sun of summer's end. Even as the flowers are fading, there can still be beauty in a garden if it is balanced with interesting bits and pieces. The wonderful thing about seeing other people's home and garden is that you can take pieces away with you to create your own ideas for your dream home and garden. I hope these photos might inspire you.

They inspire me Heidi! I love the area with a roof so that it looks like another room and everything in it - the worn wicker chair and the pears - I love pears! I had a pot of purple pansies just like that in our yard sitting in our yard this year. Truly beautiful photos!

I just love these pictures! It looks as though it has come straight out of Country Home Magazine. I could look at pictures like these for hours on end. Thank you for sharing them with us!

Wow,
What beautiful pictures. I've enlarged every one and subjected them to close scrutiny...haha! I just love them and they have given me so many ideas. I love the one with the roof and shelves - so many curiosities on those shelves and like nancy, I love the wicker chair....hmmm! I love enamel things, pots, plates jugs,they bring to mind a simpler and slower pace of life.
