A Little Pink Dooryard Garden

 

 

 
The size of Jane's garden has grown smaller over some ninety years. But it's every bit as beautiful as ever.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Special gifts and treasures are still tucked here and there inside its diminutive world.







 
She still has a green thumb, even though someone else may have to do the digging and heavy lifting. (And it helps to live in the garden of Eden that is Santa Barbara, CA.)
 




 

 
Ths is the pretty potted garden shelf right outside her patio door.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I love to see all the pretty shades of pink when I visit! All the walls of her home are a light shade of pink too.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Too bad it isn't quite small enough to pack away in my luggage to bring home!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
 
Jacqueline

  17. What an adorable patio garden, Jacqueline. Jane certainly has a green thumb. (California weather, or not!) I love all those shades of pink, and the lovely statuary she has tucked here and there. So pretty!
