June's Yard of the Month

Sherry's Home in Edgemere Park

This lovely yard belongs to one of my neighbors, Sherry. As far as I am concerned, she could win Yard of the Month every month of the year.

A small flagstone patio welcomes you just outside the front door.

The front patio is a lovely place to sit a spell and enjoy the sounds of this small fountain.

This was Sherry's house at Easter....I shared it back in April.

Sherry's dog, little Lilly Pulitzer joined us on the garden tour.

Flowing flower boxes grace the windows.

Step out the sun room's french doors to another large flagstone patio complete with a massive stone fireplace.

Just off the patio...a serene fountain.

This little fountain is just around the corner.

Sherry's yard has been the inspiration for my own yard since I moved to the neighborhood. I have made great strides since buying my house....but I still have an awfully long way to go to achieve the beauty of Sherry's yard.

Thank you for taking us on this tour. Her yard is filled with so many inspiring ideas. We didn't plant as many annuals this year as we usually do...looking at these photo's makes me want to get out there and plant!
Wishing you a great weekend :)

This truely a WOW yard. Everything looks so lush and green. I am curious, does she need to water this yard often?
Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

Oh my goodness. I wish I could climb right through my computer & see inside this beautiful home. Thanks for sharing these awesome photos!

Warmly, Michelle

What a beautiful yard and house. I wish I had more shade than sun so I could have flower boxes on the front. I just love the way they look and they add so much character to a home. Our front is like the Sahara desert in this heat.

Looks like a wonderful place to sit or play or just have a cup of coffee!
