Here's a view of that garden from outside her house. (Yes, you can right-click on the photo and open up a larger view.)
She bought this house almost thirty years ago and has consistently worked on it and restored it to it's true 1940's character. It's now part of an historic district--although this view is from a side street.
In my mind's eye, it's always a more true blue than it really is. She says people have stopped to ask her the brand of paint and the name of the color. The house is just perfect for her and as cute as cute can be without being cutsey. I just love all the work she has done over the years, including the wonderful gardens! (And--we still have a couple of the tomatoes she sent home with us--although they'll probably be gone by tonight!)
