05/24/11 DALLAS OPEN DAYS pt. II

This is the second garden we saw on our tour.  Here is how the OPEN DAYS brochure described this charming garden:

This garden, owned by a horticulturist and garden contractor, features a variety of plants. The organized chaos of the plantings is anchored by the structure of boxwood hedges. The front garden has both shade and sun areas and is planted to accommodate these different exposures while trying to maintain balance. The backyard is designed for outdoor living. The back garden appears much larger through the implementation of the “garden rooms” concept. There are rooms for entertaining and outdoor dining, relaxing, quiet areas to read or sit by the fountain, enjoy time by the fire, grow vegetables, and even a space for a flock of backyard chickens.

Hope you enjoyed these photos at least half as much as I enjoyed touring the garden.

Tomorrow I'll post the third garden on our tour.  A wonderful garden by landscape architect Susi Thompson surrounding a Tudor style cottage.

This one was my favorite, although I enjoyed all five gardens on the tour. I'll be posting on this one tomorrow; already posted about two others.
