The Point Loma Garden Walk on April 27, 2013 was a great mix of cottage gardens,
front yards with more flower borders and
a lot less lawn. Point Loma is a neighborhood located next to the Pacific Ocean and
the San Diego International Airport.
There were small sized but lush gardens, backyards with large pools,
and tables decked out for dining next to the fireplace in the outdoor room.
Visitors to this backyard commented that they
felt transported to a tropical paradise, if only momentarily,
since a courtyard off of the bedroom of this same home is inspired by Japanese-styled gardens.
Next, my favorite feature in this colorful and large garden on the tour is this beautiful vegetable garden,
which just made me want to grow more veggies better;
and even the edible flowers.
This Craftsman style home has beautiful borders, both in front
and in back.
And then there is the sculptor's artistic garden, which featured several pieces of his work.
Finally, because I am currently in my Downton Abbey phase and preparing for my
niece's upcoming 'Mad Hatter' themed baby shower,
I couldn't help snapping up photos of hats
at this garden walk
and others I have recently attended.
But, it's hats off--as they say--to the Point Loma Garden Club;
so many gardens on this tour to envy!
This is GardenEnvy.
