Chez Jo

As I stroll to the beach, I often admire Chez Jo.

Chez Lo

I like the landscaping so much that I clip it out with photoshop and try it in front of my own little cottage. You know what they say about imitation and flattery. But this lovely landscape belongs right where it is.

The front is a symphony of green, silver and gray. Potato Vine thrives on the fence and arbor.

Chez Jo

I peek through the gate and see the lovely arched door set in Carmel Stone.

Huge red roses club the trellis.

This house gets lots of sun during the day and the plantings love it.

There is also a side fence adorned by a jaunty planting.

Bacopa and red petunias spill out of the window box.

The front garden is lush.

Back to the front and up the hill to home.

Chez JO

Chez Jo is charming

    The beauty never ends in the fairy-tale town of Carmel-by-the-sea!

    Thank you for sharing your photos and commentary. Every time I see your post, I feel the cool breeze of Carmel – which is very nice here in TX. Wish we could grow such lovely flowers here…..

    I really enjoy your posts. I was hoping to repost and share this on a FB site I run. And, I wanted to know if there are legal issues with taking pictures of others homes? Just wanted to be sure before I shared your fine word.
