Where the Wild Things Grow

This home came with the added bonus of a beautiful cultivated Southern garden, including boxwood hedgerows, iron scroll gates, remnants of an elaborate brick wall, a sundial, wild blooming bulbs, interesting alcoves, Dogwood, Redbud, and Japanese Maple trees, a carriage house that was converted into a garden shed, a gorgeous Great Oak on the front lawn, Camellias and Azaleas, unique species of plants including yellow Gloriosa Lillies, Brunfelsia, Carolina Silverbell, Lady Banks Rose, and ivy, oh the ivy!  The Spring flowers seem to have come and gone, but I was able to snap a few shots in our garden before they withered under the weight of all the rain we’ve had lately.

    • What a lovely backyard! It’s like having your very own private retreat. I have a birdbath similar to yours and I use it as a birdfeeder. I now have tons of cardinals, bluejays and several others, and of course the pesky squirrels. But it’s wonderful just watching them all try to fit in it. Enjoy your scenic backyard this summer. xo
