38th Annual NOGS Tour 2013 Garden # 4

How about a pretty downtown Savannah
 courtyard on this fine Sunday morning which happens
 to be the first day of September.

The front of the home looked a lot like a traditional Savannah home

beautiful woodwork, lighting, lots of windows
 and haint blue ceiling

all along the side of the house was this stucco and wrought iron work
which led to the entrance gate for the courtyard

once inside it looked more like what I think of as a French villa

this fountain has a mirror behind it which expanded
 the courtyard and brought in lots of light

raised beds filled with herbs and flowers

loved the path which went along the inside
of the stucco wall to the front yard

Confederate jasmine was planted along most of the walls

there was a beautiful alcove

with this pretty dining area which looks out into another
fountain area and into the home

this is the opposite side of the alcove

beautiful comfy setting area, pretty pots with lush greenery

my favorite pots ever.. I am so in love with these big white pots

This courtyard was very tranquil, peaceful and natural looking
even full of people it felt as if I was alone.
The absent of lots color made it a calming space.

and that little pop of color added the " happy "to the space
Hope ya'll enjoyed ..
Have a wonderful weekend everyone..  hugs, Cherry


  1. I could enjoy spending some time in that beautiful courtyard!

  2. Savannah has the most beautiful courtyards!! Love the idea of the mirror behind the water fountain!! Lovely!

  3. Love the wrought iron and grass between the pavers..

  4. A courtyard with water flowing and lots of seating...what could be better on a warm September day!

  5. That mirrored fountain wall caught my eye ... it makes the lion's head look like it's floating. What a wonderful area to enjoy the summer weather beside all the refreshing sounds of running water :) Thanks for sharing! Wendy
