Dreaming of Green

January 28, 2013


If you’re in the same hemisphere as me, welcome to my least favorite time of the year weather-wise. I like some snow for Christmas but once January starts to drag on and we get gray day after gray day, I’m thoroughly ready for Spring! Doesn’t this first picture just exude warmth? I would love to be kicking back with a fizzy drink on this beautiful patio.


Casual, ethnic, rustic, and so very calming. With a breeze behind you, this porch would be the perfect place to meditate or dream the afternoon away.


This backyard is so very stunning, don’t you agree? I love plant-life, but I tend to side with the folks that say acres of lawn is unnatural and wasteful. Large lawns require so much water to stay green not to mention all the mowing. This backyard is so green but that’s largely thanks to the vertical planting and the topiaries. I adore topiaries, so this looks like heaven to me.
