I'm following up from yesterday's post with a few more photos from the first home we visited last Sunday on the Phoenix Home & Garden tour. Phoenix Home & Garden is a local magazine that features architectural and design worthy homes. The tour was organized to benefit the Desert Botanical Garden which I think all of you know is near and dear to my heart.
Above is one of the flower lined walkways leading to the home.
This shot looks across the sweeping lawn toward the home.
Along the way toward the house we pass another zen-like place, a beautiful little koi pond.
In a quiet little spot between the guest house and the main house was a small rose garden with two rows of roses in all shades and varieties. I thought this one was especially beautiful.
In this last shot you will see my four friends heading out the driveway so we can move on to the next garden spot on the list. Yes, those are umbrellas we are all holding. Sunday gave us a beautiful day of rain showers and cooler temperatures.
