Garden Porn

OH MY GOSH!!! I couldn't breathe when I first looked at this.

Then I saw this one!

I * almost * want to move to South Carolina!!!

I should be honest, it wasn't so much the plants as it was the over all structure of both places. (And, yes the plantings)

These places are so well done and completely out of my price range. :( But it is nice to look at them.

I'm sure the photos were taken in spring and just after a nice rain. Wonder what these places look like in Aug?

Anyone else have some good Garden Porn?

Melva, great idea for a thread. I love to browse around in beautiful gardens way out of my range of ability and cost, but I do get some ideas :-)

Recently I discovered a French Blog, Paradis Express. Here's just one entry among hundreds of fabulous gardens on the site:

Ha ha. But, all I know is according to Google, some folks seem to have a strange idea about how to garden!

I would love to have the stone artifacts (antique or not) to make my yard look like this garden.

From the blog about it: "I am an absolute fan of the work of Michael Trapp, decorator and landscape designer, able to transform your plot into a garden straight out of Pompeii. His masterpiece is his own garden."
