This past weekend I got the opportunity to tour a fellow blogger's garden with some other gals that blog from the same area. Victoria of Our Life In Idaho opened her home and her beautiful garden to four of us other Idaho garden bloggers. Together, she and her husband, Kim, have built an amazing oasis in a quiet neighborhood complete with a pond.
They are a certified Wildlife Garden and it shows. Lot of thought and planning has gone into native plantings and habitat for many forms of wildlife in their garden.
They have a lovely raised porch in the back corner of their garden so that they can look out over the lovely landscape they have created. I love that they planned places to just enjoy their space. I never thought of places like that for my own garden but I will now.
I aspire to have a full garden with lots of whimsy built in. I was amazed that around every corner was something new to see and lot of things you can't see until you're right there upon them. I love a good mystery. This was truly an amazing place to see.
They even have a pond complete with a wonderful waterfall that added so much dimension to their garden. I love the sound of water and it was so peaceful to listen to. They also had huge fish in their pond and great pond plants too.
I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet all these ladies. I love their blogs and the people to go with them are great too! So thank you, Victoria and Kim, for opening your home and your beautiful garden to us. I can't wait to see everyone else's now and to show mine when the time is right.
