I like that garden!

Wow, a real haven.
What a glorious garden .. So much love has gone into this. And to think it is only 6 years old .. 😀
So much serene beauty!
Love the grey kitty!
Looks majestic in its own skin…er, hair.
Beautiful!! We love gardening, but haven’t quite got to this level of artistry yet! Thank you for sharing this, it is truly inspiring.
I love gardening, but I can tell you that I have a way to go before I reach that level of artistry!
It’s a remarkable garden.
Gorgeous! I think I’ve found my new “home office.” 🙂
Wow! That is a lot of work. But, gratifying to enjoy and show to visitors.
Really magical–you just want to wander & relax in all that lovely greenness!
Gardens are also my passion. Love the garden, you look great by the way ❤
Ah someday I shall have a beautiful garden like this. At least in my dreams 🙂
Me too! Wishing you will get your dream.
