It had started to rain again by the time we made it to the last house on the Phoenix Home & Garden tour a few weeks ago. The last house turned out to be a very livable space, much smaller than the enormous houses we had just visited.
The yard was neatly trimmed with lots of potted plants to surround the pool area.
The pool was much smaller too. It was more like a backyard pool rather than a resort pool.
My favorite spot in the yard was this cozy little place around the fireplace. It's very colorful and looks like a comfortable place to entertain guests.
