Somewhat warm breezes are beginning to blow and I’m in the mood to get dirt under my fingernails! I stumbled across a country garden tour photographed by Rikki Snyder and it’s got me inspired.
Stepping up to the front door of the historic Colonial home, you get a hint of what you’ll see throughout the gardens. Second-hand treasures dot the property in really delightful ways.
Charming outbuildings add architectural structure to the country landscape. The shed has so many wonderful details like multi-paned windows, a hay window, and shutters and a flower box at another window. Adirondack chairs beckon you to join the chicken and enjoy the view.
I’m not sure if this is an outhouse or another shed, but regardless, it’s pretty cute. Old metal rakes create quaint wall art.
Winding vines make their appearance throughout the country garden.
I’ve always loved how vines create canopies and cozy spots in the landscape. Chickens roaming here and there simply add to the appeal of this charming garden.
Outbuildings with stone foundations show their age. Lanterns light doorways and paths.
Everywhere you turn in this garden your eye is delighted with a new discovery.
It just goes to show – a little ingenuity and creativity can turn any space in your yard to something truly special.
Recently, we had someone do a landscape drawing for our backyard. I’m super excited about it and will share it with you very soon! In the meantime, you can see more of this charming country garden at Houzz.
