One of our very favorite things to do is take walks around our lovely little neighborhood for inspiration.
We are very fortunate to live close to a river so we’re always gravitating in that direction.
I decided to tote my little point and shoot to see what inspiration could be captured for my own yard. But one thing led to another and suddenly I’m taking photos of, well…
… blades of grass.
And pretty mountain views.
Have I ever mentioned how much I adore ancient trees?
When I lived on acreage, we had a massive willow that grew over the road like an umbrella. I miss that tree but am happy to take in these for free anytime I desire.
After the dyke walk, we were treated to some really amazing yards. I gasped when I saw this view. The colours are true. I didn’t play with them. The most vibrant green ever.
Isn’t this a fabulous entry? I’ve always loved this house.
Coolest sign post I ever did see. 🙂
Ahhh… and then there’s ‘the dog fence’. Because we walk with a dog ourselves, the two dogs behind the fence use to really rattle our chain. Literally.
Today these guys could be Salt and Pepper.
But when I’m annoyed and nearly get my own arm taken off because my own dog on a leash is hopping like a rabbit at all their commotion, they can be labeled:
Nit and Wit
Goof and Ball
Zig and Zag
Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dummer
Be and Quiet
Fruit and Loop
They’ve been retrained so things are MUCH better. Today… Cutie and Pie for you two! xo
Now, here was an interesting find! This is a branch made fence used from all the recent pruning this homeowner undertook.
It’s a garden fence! I felt like such a… snoop.
And how I fell in love with the raised beds in THIS garden! Awesome brainstorm this one was, Ms. S! 🙂
I love white fences against green grass.
My alltime favorite arbor. If a lumber store came knockin’ on my door and told me to go shopping, I would build something similar along my back yard to camouflage the chain link fence. Ah, it’s nice to dream.
One more giant tree. Love this birch.
Oh gross! Now THESE people should stay home clean up their yard! Nice beginnings, but come ON. I’m not even gonna watermark this one. Those poor birds are getting choked with weeds. Tsk tsk…
(just for the record? this would be MY yard…)
Guess I should stay home more, huh? 🙂
Where’s your favorite place to snoop for yard ideas?
