All those arbors and flowers are gorgeous. We have an arbor, but it's under big trees so the roses just struggle under it. The arbor also is rotting - time to get a new one. Thanks for all the inspiration! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


I love the gardens on your blog.



You can describe a thing so nicely that there's every reason for you to get lost again. I particularly enjoyed the arbors and seats with many cushions, though I can't imagine what they'd be made with to make them pleasant for outdoor living.

Thank you Vicki, I have enjoyed and have been inspired by all of these photos, and I love the little bird clipart too. I especially like the large arched arbor and round herb garden and the covered white sitting arbor that you consider a favorite. I can imagine sitting there at all times of the year. This truly is a glorious post, and I know it took time. I appreciate it for as you know, I'm doing a lot of garden dreaming right now too.

I have a lot of songbirds most of the spring and summer, in spite of the crows that give them a hard time. I see Stellar Jays about once or twice a year, and love the swallows. What wonderful shows they perform, with their swooping and looping about! I love listening to the finches. They may have the prettiest song in our garden. Alas, I've never seen a real bluebird!

I have learned that when the Typepad editor isn't working well for me in Internet Explorer, that if I switch to Mozilla Firefox, it works fine. I don't have a clue as to why, but maybe you could give it a try.



I love all the inspiration. Wonderful photos. I'm in the dreaming stage too-but our little yard will have to be a mini version. I still think it can be great though!

The very reason why having garden is so addicting.
