Yard of the Month

 July's Yard of the Month 
for Edgemere Park
My neighborhood's yard of the month for July was an easy pick.
Once I and the rest of the committee set our eyes on this yard...we knew we had a winner.
I had such a good time visiting with the owner of this house and she graciously let me take lots 
of photos to share here.
This place has large containers filled with flowers and greenery everywhere.
All of that was in the front yard and porch.

Here we go around back.
I love this rounded back patio off the back door complete with the original iron railings.
Isn't this ancient icebox fun?
The current owner added the pool, outdoor kitchen, fireplace and pool.
I'd feel like I was on vacation everyday with this backyard.

Come back on Sunday when I'll share the inside of this home.

Beautiful "YARD" and I"d kill for those windowboxes!!!! :)

They must spend a lot of time watering all those potted plants to keep everything looking so nice in this heat we're having!

I have one flower pot on my front porch - that's all I was brave enough to commit to keeping alive.

Love the Mother-In-Laws-Tongues plant in the planter. I have a lot of that plant and it gave me ideas. It is a lovely yard and house!

Wow! To have that backyard and pool would be a dream come true. I just told my husband that we need a pool. It's actually hot enough this summer to really enjoy it.
