  1. That is one daft pot! I would imagine children love to visit it.

    Otherwise . . . elegance and culture and adventure. Some interesting combinations!


  2. As usual, beautiful pictures from your garden, the view over the lake is so nice. Your garden is a wonderful place. What a great idea to show a winter picture now in the middle of summer.
    I really like your Porthole sculpture with the moon in the middle of the picture. Thats a kind of magic.
    Our bright nights here in northern Sweden is also magical in its own way, and yes, it's hard to sleep now. Soon it will be sunrise here, I'm still awake. I'll sleep when autumn arrives.

    Have a nice day.

  3. Your garden is a little paradise. That pot. How was it made. I'd love to have one like that.
    All your pictures are so beautiful.

  4. Love the shot of the planter in the formal garden. The planter and plants alone are eye candy, but your cropping for the photo ... and the lighting ... and Lake Michigan! Fantastic!
