This post brought up memories of my childhood. My grandma was an avid gardener. I wonder if my fascination with Carmel just a nostalgia or it is a unexplored part of me wishing to come out. I only have few potted plants that I water regularly, but I love looking at the beauty created by others. This whole blog is the beautiful masterpiece.
i love the quote at the beginning. and that umbrella trellis with the fushia and the dear little frog on top… well, be still my heart!
do you ever tire of hearing my thank you for sharing your beloved carmel by the sea with the rest of us? i am landlocked on the hot, dry, windy prairie. your blog reminds me that there are indeed little bits of paradise. every spring i get so excited and put out plants. every late spring they all but blow away, then those that survive the wind try to live in temps of over 100 for weeks on end….
alas… my pioneer spirit grows thin! i admire that spirit, but i prefer the sea… and gardens by the sea.
i’ll visit often, through your blog. the fellow commenter said it best…
“this whole blog is the beautiful masterpiece!”
This is a very beautiful house. It reminded me of houses we see on the paintings of Thomas Kinkade. The garden is lovely, so much variety of flowers. I love hydrangea too, I only have one but I will plant a blue one next spring.
We will passing through Carmel in three weeks….can’t wait to be back in a fairytale..even if only for an afternoon! Thanks for sharing these gorgeous photographs!
You take such wonderful photos! Such inspiration and joy to be found in your blog. I love it! Thank you!
