Sunday Morning in A Southern Garden

We visited my husband's Aunt this week, sadly due to the death of her son.  She is the epitome of the Southern Lady with Southern Style.  I love visiting her, who at 90 is as spry as she can be!  She has a lovely home, filled with gorgeous antiques, but one of my favorite spots there is the back garden.  It just calls you to sit down with a cool drink, and enjoy the shade.  I only had my Iphone for a camera, but couldn't resist snapping a few pictures to share with you.  Hope you enjoy!  

Look at this perfectly weathered and chippy blue gate!  I would love to find one of these.



She has a wonderful lattice arbor, covered in vine.


Sweet bird houses dot the landscape.

There is a lovely fountain/birdbath.

I love the little garden cottage.  It's a great place to go for some quiet time, either inside, or on its front porch.



A closer view of the cottage.

Lucky birds....beautiful homes.


Several statues peek through the ferns.



Doesn't this just make you want to take your iced tea or lemonade outside for a leisurely stroll?  

Take some time today to look at the beauty surrounding you, and give thanks to God for all your blessings.
