I'd love to look out my front door or windows and see a sight like this! Beautiful!! Hope you have a great weekend, Ciel!

Beautifully composed. The flowers are hydrangea?

I love the way you framed this, and such gorgeous flowers. They must have smelled wonderful. Have a lovely weekend!

(And lol re: instagramming. I had a 90s style flip phone until my office practically forced me to get a smartphone. Part of me has finally arrived in 2012!:)

I love the colours here! The pinky red is bright and cheerful.

Lovely colors!

Jack said...

Well done, Ciel. Do you like topiaries? I don't even like to see hedges pruned too neatly. Plants should have a relatively natural form, in my book.

What vivid colors. Nice garden.

@ James: roses.

@ Jack: I agree with you!

James Wei said...

I saw you mentioning them as roses. But they looked like hydrangea though hehe

What a view from that porch! Someone has taken a lot of care and planning.

Quite impressive 'cloud' topiary!

This reminds me a lot of Disney World's Epcot...tons of topiary there, much of it shaped like the Disney characters.

Very nice neighborhood, Grand Siecle.

Re your question on Ocala: I'm sorry, I do not know the name of the artist. I looked the painting over, but couldn't find a name.

Lovely! That topiary reminds me of Thailand.

THe mix of color is fantastic. Love the contrast of green and pink. Those colors go together nicely!

A great combination of spiky and soft Ciel, the topiary just adds that unique touch. Those roses are to die for, sooooo looking forward to my roses flowering again.
