Cottage garden: pergola, water garden

buddyroseJanuary 17, 2009

This is my new back yard. Photos taken this summer when I just moved in. I sit out under my pergola, rain, shine, snow.... I don't care. I stare at my little water fall water pond just past the pergola. the second photo is the water pond. I love it.

I don't blame you for spending time in your yard. It looks relaxing. A cold beer and a cigar come to mind. Thanks for sharing.

I love it, too! I'd be spending my waking moments there!

I would hang out there too, rain or shine. What a lovely, relaxing oasis you have created. What is the vine that covers your pergola?

thank u all for the compliments. It's been 7 months since I bought this little cottage and my back yard is my favorite place to be. I could pinch myself I love it so much. I figured out how to resize photos so here's another one of my garden. It's very narrow but lovely.

flowerlady, I don't know the name of the vine on top of my pergola. It has spread all over and it begins on another arbor (that can't be seen in the above photos.) Actually think there are 2 vines intermixed and one, I think, is honeysuckle. That bloomed late summer with tiny whitish flowers. I don't know all the names of the plants in my garden yet.
