This is the same garden that I shared Wednesday they had us enter through the back into the courtyard 

and they then directed us through the book store
 and out the side entrance

 this is the front of the home

pretty details every where

the iron gate is the entrance in to the book store

this is a tiny alley way into the store

you can stand with your hands touching from wall to wall

and the inside of the store is filled to the rafters with wonderful old books, prints and maps
checkout that old cabinet

Happy Friday everyone 
and yes there is still more to share

Savannah's Hidden Gardens Tour 2012 ~ 1

are ya'll ready to sneak a peek inside some of 
Savannah's Hidden Gardens

I love this first picture it is my girlfriend Bobbie and a lovely lady that we meet while doing the tour. 
There was four ladies in her group.
They had come all the way from Texas to do the tour.

The entry into this garden was awesome the narrow passage lead into a completely enclosed very lush garden.. It was exactly what a Savannah courtyard garden should be.


The Confederate Jasmine was awesome .. sorry awesome is my word right now..lol  All over town it was in full bloom and the fragrance well if you have smelled it you know it was wonderful if you haven't I sure wish you could.. It is my favorite thing about springtime.


see the rusty turtle there on the right he was cool

Violets, antlers, sedums, rust = pretty

beautiful benches

Brick walls and stucco sure make for pretty garden backgrounds and all the greenery

The Oak leaf hydrangea's where perfect

the home/ antique book store that this garden
 belong to was 4 stories.
As I was looking up I saw two metal stars and
dag gone it.. I meant to ask about them and forgot,
 so when I find out I will share.. They look to have been there forever..




While inside this garden the rest of the world disappeared you couldn't help but to just be, to just relax and enjoy.. 

I'm thinking this was my favorite

but wait there is so many more to share..
 Can't wait to see which one ya'll like the best..
hope ya'll enjoyed ...
Have a FABULOUS day everyone... hugs, Cherry

Amethyst Falls American Wisteria





Happy Monday everyone isn't this pretty it was also at the Coastal Gardens last weekend, think I need to find one. 
It has just a little hint of fragrance and
 it isn't as rambunctious as other wisterias.
It's a little chilly here this morning putting on my long britches and socks and heading out to play.. 
Have a wonderful day hugs, Cherry
