The Third Private Garden


The third and last of the private garden's that Glenda and I toured took us into the mountains of Paradise Valley to a home perched on the side of the mountain with an eastern view.  Above we see the front patio on the west side of the home and facing the mountain to the right.


I enjoyed this planter on the patio with the built in kaleidoscope viewers looking down into the flowers.  I took a peek into the viewer for a wonderful abstract view of those colorful flowers.


Walking around the path leading to east side of the house, I passed the patch of blooming aloe plants with a few glass ornaments scattered among the blooms.


On the eastern side of the home and a little below the house itself was this great game area complete with several putting greens.


The views were fantastic from the vantage point of the back patio overlooking the infinity-edge pool.

Glenda and I had a great time touring these fantastic gardens.  We'll have to watch for this event next year and do it again.

This is so gorgeous to look at. It takes my mind off the the cold heavy rain that is going through here. Thank you.

Pretty amazing! Imagine having your own putting greens! (And I don't even play golf.)

I want that infinity pool and the putting greens. The rest of the place ain't bad, either! :)

Nice views from the back patio. But I prefer yesterday's garden.

Lois said...

Wow! You really can't beat those views. The garden is lovely too.

Three very different gardens but all worth seeing and photographing! The idea of the kaleidoscope was brilliant.
