"Our Italian escape is a mix of formal hedges, framed green 'bowling lawns,' statuesque Italian cypress, and a smattering of whimsical English and Pacific Northwest inspired plantings along with several Italian-style concrete statues."
At the top of the driveway is this entry garden.
On one side of the house.
A view back from across the large sports court,
From inside the kitchen looking at the dining area.
"The property lends a very neat and formal attitude while still exuding the natural style and whimsy of comfort."
Pergola on the south side of the house next to the "South Bowling Green."
Love the hug serpentine mixed border. What a perfect lawn; glad I don't have to mow it!
Looking back at the pergola and house.
Past the water feature the path continues on to
another seating area.
The featured artist in this garden was Dehanna Jones Totally Blown Glassworks whose work you may have seen at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show or a variety of other venues.
More of Dehanna's work and an excuse to get one last peek of this lovely space.
Thank you Donna-Marie and Chuck for opening your garden for us to enjoy!
