Good morning, lovelies! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start. It's been raining here for a few days now and I cannot wait for the sun to come back out so I can enjoy the great outdoors.

I've been so enchanted with gardens lately. Having some time away from the beach has really given me the opportunity to explore the other lovely aspects of the season. Unfortunately I do not have a garden so I'm left to admire those of others. I hope one day to have one of my own.

Do you have a garden of your own? If so, what do you grow?

Hope you all have a lovely day!

xoxo

Hey Dawn! These pics are so idyllic. I have a garden at home with a large pond with Koi carp in. I love pottering in my garden with Missy to keep me company xoxo

We have a couple of flower beds but I definitely should be doing more now that I have a yard (a small one, but still!).

I love gardens, I just have a little one, but I'd love to someday have one like the one from the book/movie The Secret Garden, its wonderful, A little hide away with lots of flowers growing wildly and a little house to sit in and have a cup of tea with cake..would be wonderful!! Hope you have a great day xxx

Lovely pictures, Dawn. I have always loved gardens. We had a really small one in the house I grew up in. Mumbai is more of a concrete jungle. These pictures make me wish i was anywhere but here.

Lana said...

Wow, that garden and home are just magical. My little garden is desperately needing some love!x

Plami said...

beautiful, just what I needed to start daydreaming :)

classiq said...

I don't have a garden either, but I would love to. I would have my own roses and strawberries and I'm sure it would be a great entertainment place. One day...Hope you have a beautiful day, Dawn! xoxo

Beautiful! I adore gardens and I was just going to blog about this, about what I would grow. Isn't there something magical about gardens?

Marianne {Style For Living} said...

I love the charm of this garden. My garden is filled with many pretty flowers and blooming right now are my 20+ hydrangeas. Love this time of year in my garden.

I know! Can't wait for the dreariness to go away! Have a wonderful day!

B. in the Know said...

We have a flower garden in our yard and are in the beginning stages of putting in a vegetable and herb garden - so excited for that. I wish I could go and play outside in the garden today - so not motivated to be at work.
Much love,
B

We do have a garden...but I am dying for when we buy our own place. I can't wait to landscape and make my garden my own, you know? Right now I'm loving lavender and little bursts of yellow and white.

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

Everyone in the blog world seems to be garden obsessed today! Your images are gorgeous Dawn, I just want to dive right in and be there! I do have a lovely little backyard where I grow rosemary, oregano, lavendar and mint {all because they are not challenging and grow like weeds--everything else I pretty much killed, lol}. Hope you are enjoying the rain, I wish we would have a bit here!

Martina said...

Hi sweet friend! I have a garden - half wild, half nicely done. I love it and wish i had more time to shape it according to my vision - but there are so many things i want to do! Thank god i have a lovely friend who loves gardening and often comes to help me!

Curves ahead makeup said...

your pictures always put a smile on my face there just so pretty !!

Christel @ Captivated by image said...

The gardens on these images look extremely romantic, I love all the roses! I'll have my own garden very soon, I'm very happy with the Hydrangeas already in it, but would love to have roses there too.
Hope you'll one day have a garden too:)

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

No garden at my LA apartment :( But who needs one when you post beautiful pictures like these?!

Tamra {walkswithBella} said...

I've always thought about making a little pottery hanging garden on my balcony (i.e. fire escape). Those photos are dreamy.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh yessss! English country living would not be complete without a garden, which functions as an extended living-room in summer... but I'm a very lazy gardener. xoxo

oh my! I wish! this one is like a fairytale!

Bad Joan said...

This little cottage is the home of my dreams. I'm in love!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

It is one of my life long aspirations to have a gorgeous flower garden of my very own someday...my mom always has the most beautiful gardens at her house, hopefully someday her green thumb will rub off on me! (c:

Sweet darling. said...

Aw rain can never do you good when your an outdoor person :( really hope the weather over there gets better soon :)

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

i don't have a garden but my dad, mom and fiance do. i might need to get on this. ;) i think gardens are so pretty but i totally do not have the patience for tending them!

designchic said...

The first thing I do in the morning is make a cup of coffee and head out to my garden. Love the smell of the roses and gardenias...gorgeous images!!

Samantha Elisabeth said...

These pictures are so enchanting. I don't have a garden of my own (I'm pretty sure I would kill it), but someday (along with my dream castle), I want a huge garden filled with pretty flowers and fountains and secret nooks. I picture my children running through it playing all sorts of fun games (with me joining in, of course!). Although that image is pretty far off in the distance!

Julip Made said...

Did you ever find a place to throw your garden soiree? Garden of dreams is an appropriate title for me as sadly we have no garden. My lone basil plant and mooching off my parents garden will have to suffice for now. Hope you had a fantastic weekend lady!

ryan said...

Beautiful...we have a tiny deck that we deck out in plants/flowers, but someday I would love a garden, especially one with fountains

A BRIT GREEK said...

Gorgeous pics and also the Monday post was fab and dreamy too.

There is a lack of garden spaces in Athens, unless you live in the country... Pretty much everyone i know has olive groves, vineyards and a whole host of fruit trees. But in London my folks have an apple tree, pear tree, cherry tree and raspberries/blackberries growing.

STYLE'N said...

I don't but someday I hope I will have one. I can barely keep my 3 plants alive!!!

Fashion Tales.... said...

I love gardens as well. first picture is just ethereal. I love visiting my mother and viewing her garden, and benefiting from the garden eating. haha!

Karen said...

Love these pics, so pretty!

Oh, hope now you are having sunny days. I have also had rain and cold. Not seemed it was August! I love these pics. Xxxx
