It was my day of today, so we checked out Cottage Living's Idea Home.
They built this beautiful 2700 sq ft cottage (on a 50 x 150 lot) with wild lanscaped front and back yards. I thought it was really lovely because it looked manicured (with the brick pavers) but the plants they used were wild and carefree - sort of the english garden outline with wild flowers.
I love this huge vase/urn they have in the front yard and it's iridescent colors. My mom's advice -- if you put something in the garden, make it BIG!
I posted more photos of the house and gardens on my main blog site here.
