  7. I love the winding path that doesn't show where it is leading, so much mystery! And the log pergola is incredible. Congrats on getting to write about such a beautiful place. The photos are superb. :-)

  13. That arbor is fabulous! I live close to the beach and am always hunting for driftwood for some sort of similar creation... very cool.

  17. Your garden is a feast for the eyes.
    I love the blue bottles.

  18. Can someone tell me the origin of the blue-bottles as garden ornament? I somehow missed the beginning of this trend.

    It makes me think of the racks they use in France for drying newly washed wine bottles.
