Mobile Botanical Gardens Gallery of Gardens Tour 2011 - Garden #8 Stimpson Garden & Fertilizer Friday

Only 2 more gardens left on the Mobile Botanical Gardens Gallery of Gardens Tour

Today we will visit the Stimpson Garden for Fertilizer Friday

It reminds me of an English garden





I would love to see all this Wisteria in bloom....I bet it is gorgeous



The property was surrounded by HUGE Magnolias....you can see them all around the edge of the property



This fountain was in the rear of the garden. The two trellises are covered with clematis.


They had an amazing outdoor kitchen and patio



Isn't this nice! I would love to sit out there on a cool night by that fire.


Well I'm kinda glad this tour is almost over. I have too many other things to blog about that I have been saving for 2 weeks!!!! So tomorrow we will wrap up with gardens #9 & #10. Monday I can return to non- garden tour posts :-)

Mobile Botanical Gardens Gallery of Gardens Tour 2011 Garden #7 Stella's Garden

Day #7 of Mobile Botanical Gardens Gallery of Gardens Tour

Today you will see Stellas' Garden.


The house was very modern, and at first I wasn't sure what we were going to see.

As we entered the garden I could see how large the property was

All throughout the property were small gardens, fountains, artwork, etc.

Every now and then you would have a little burst of blue blooms courtesy of the hydrangeas


This statue sits out in front of the pool and is lines with palm trees


I loved this pool and the loggia



I really liked these chairs! They are pretty snazzy if you ask me




This tree was a twisted mulberry tree. One of the ladies on the tour was calling it an arthritis tree...LOL




I was told that this was Stella's kitchen garden, but after her death, perrenials & annuals were planted here



Hope you enjoyed Stellas' garden. See ya'll tomorrow

Mobile Botanical Gardens Gallery of Gardens Tour 2011 - Garden #6 Speegle Garden

Day #6 of Mobile Botanical Gardens Gallery of Gardens Tour
Today's garden is the Speegle Garden


This yard, like the others, was mostly shade.



I like the brick detail

I also liked the flagstone used for a walkway. Makes it feel more natural




This potting shed was wonderful! I would love to have a little spot like that.

After working in the garden, on a long hot day, you could step inside and relax

or just sit out on the porch and have some lemonade

This is the inside of the potting shed. I loved the old barn wood used on the walls. There was also a potting area, and a gym. You could garden, pot some plants, work out and then take a nap!

Nikko Blue Hydrangea's lining the walkway




Only a few more gardens to go. Hope ya'll will stick around
