Cherry Blossoms in Nita's Garden

Enjoy a stroll through my friend Nita's garden. You are in for a treat.
I can truly say my pictures do not do this beautiful garden justice.
Allée of cherry trees that were bought marked snowgoose white cherry.
But, we can clearly see they are beautiful pink cherry blossoms.
Nita is a master gardener and floral designer. Her interior decorating skills are also top notch. She has lived in Europe and traveled to many interesting places. Her home is elegantly decorated with many antique pieces and  lovely collections.

Very soon this area will be bursting with many large potted plants. Lemon trees, ivy topiaries, and rose standards to name a few are lush and beautiful. It is a little early to bring them out.

She bought this attractive tablerunner in Provence.
Her family and friends enjoy pleasant evenings sitting by the fire in season and enjoying the garden when a fire is not needed. Her terrace is truly a beautiful retreat.

Aren't the dogs cute! I couldn't resist taking their pictures too!

Stay tuned next week for her summer garden. Here is a preview pic.

This is my friend Nita, with her precious and adorable new grandaughter!
Thank you Nita for sharing your beautiful garden with us!

  1. I can't imagine actually living someplace with such a beautiful garden. It looks like it's from a magazine. The fireplace is stunning. Can't wait to see the summer version. Have a great week!
    p.s. Thank you for your very sweet comment about my blog. :o)

  2. Wow! Thanks for sharing your friend's garden. The fireplace is absolutely stunning...what a statement it makes. I love the ivy trellis she has trained on the wall...gorgeous. Great eye candy and inspiration everywhere..can't wait to see more of her summer garden. Thanks for your sweet visit and sharing your post!

  3. Nita, thanks for letting Mama take pictures. Everything looks incredible. Your house and garden are truly an inspiration for me ever since that first time I was given a tour. In time, I hope to capture the same feeling in my garden.

  4. Well, I think your photographs are amazing. I can't wait to see the summer version also. I love the peacocks and the picutres of the furbabies.

  5. Cherry blossoms, that's something we don't have in Houston. A couple of years ago I happened to be in DC when they were in full bloom, and there's nothing like that sight. I can imagine what a visual delight your friend's garden is when all is green and blooming. Such peaceful pleasure there is in a garden. Have a very good week, my dear.

  6. A beautiful spring surely is right around the corner!

    Thank you SO very much for your prayers my friend.

    I'd love for you to pop by for a visit. I am hosting a $50 Kirklands Giftcard Giveaway.

  7. Beautiful outdoor area! I love the climbing vines. Thanks for stopping by and yes, I am feeling better...Chritine

  8. The rusty lanterns, the terracotta, and the patio are so delightful not to mention the sweet pets.

  9. Wow! Her landscaping is to die for!

  10. Such beautiful and stunning gardens. I love that trellis vine wall. Unreal. Thanks for linking to TTT. Hugs, marty

  11. I love the vine trained on the diagonal against the brick wall, so classically pretty.

  12. I am dazzled by so much here in this post...the gorgeous pink blossoms, that phenomenal outdoor fireplace...and even the dogs are incredibly charming!!!!

    I pray that you are great and have a blessed week,
    PS I am going to Haven, too....wanna drive together, etc.?

  13. I love the photo of the angel.

  14. Oh my goodness everything is beautiful. The cherry blossoms I love and I read an article about the Cherry Blossoms in Washington, DC are making an early appearance this year due to the mild winter. I also love the outdoor fireplace. Stunning I have never seen anything like that before. I think all my time would be outside.

  15. I love the colorscheme of black and white that she used out there. Her fireplace is so pretty. I would LOVE to have a backyard area like that! I love her vines planted in that diamond pattern over the wall too. Thanks for the tour. I would be jealous to have a neighbor like that.

  16. What a stunning space
    for a garden.....any time
    of year! Throw in a lovely
    cat, sweet dogs, a precious
    friend and adorable baby
    and this post has it all : )

    Happy Wednesday,
    xx Suzanne
