The Second Private Garden


The second private garden that Glenda and I toured Sunday before last was at a wonderful pueblo style home with a fantastic desert landscape that is so lush, the house is almost hidden from sight.


Off to one side of the home was this fantastic outdoor eating area shaded by a very rustic and very southwestern shelter covered in a vine.  What a perfect place for a dinner party on those warm spring and fall nights.


In the back of the house right next to the pool, were potted plants and several citrus trees.  I loved that big hunk of turquoise rock sitting on the bench.


There were two fireplaces in this back area of the yard but this one was my favorite.  This looks like a perfect place to relax after a long day.


This back area of the yard was a perfect environment for growing all kinds of plants in colorful pots and containers.































I love pueblo style homes so this one really appealed to me.

I also love pueblo style homes. This one and its gardens are magnificent. The cover for that table reminds me a bit of the tiki huts made by Florida Indians. And I love the concrete bench held up by what appears to be some Egyptian-related critters!

That is a beautiful garden. I love all the cactus and the soft, rounded edges of the pueblo walls. That turquoise is amazing! Is raw turquoise valuable?

That hunk of turquoise would probably pay my rent for a year! Beautiful home and garden.

It is a lovely place. I love that outdoor table with the vine covered shelter.

But for the partly concealed fancy architecture, it reminds me of those desert parks east and west of Tucson.

I loved every space here Sharon, so clever the way the outside is designed as a series of outdoor rooms!
