Just amazing inspiration for all we have to do yet! : )
Wonderful pictures...I adore the cottages of Carmel and those gardens. Little bits of Heaven.

That rabbit carriage was delightful!

Too sweet...oh, and I got outbid! *Hmpf* At the last minute too...
Would have looked wonderful in our bedroom at **Run Cottage!

Enjoy your weekend!

I am working on my cottage garden! I have a bed right in front of my front porch that I an attempting to create that full, lovely cottage look; not so sure my neighbors (with their gorgeous symetrical gardens) appreciate it - YET! LOL

I love cottage gardens but also [here] living under what feels like forever drought conditions it has evolved out of necessity in that I need those hardy, strong classic [pass along] cottage perennials to survive the heat and lack of rain. I have finally convinced my DH that a small scaled white picket fence would just set it off!
