We’ve had several gray days in a row where I live and I’m craving sunshine. And with the news being bleak at the same time, my guess is that all of us could use a little bright spot in our day. So today I’m re-sharing a beautiful country garden in upstate New York. I hope you’ll find a bit of peace and beauty from this home’s gorgeous gardens.
Charming outbuildings add architectural structure to the country landscape. The property’s garden 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.
Despite the small size, it might be tempting to turn the garden shed into a tiny house. I always dream of having a shed like this one day.
Even the foundation is quirky and charming – reminds me of the foundation on my house.
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. I could easily spend hours on end out here – how about you?
Everywhere you turn in this garden your eye is delighted with a new discovery – like this charming little dining space.
It just goes to show – a little ingenuity and creativity can turn any space in your yard to something truly special.
Today it was warm enough to do a little maintenance on my garden pond. The fish were enjoying the warmer weather and swimming around a little bit. Soon – very soon the waterlilies will start to grow and I can’t wait!
