Keeyla graciously agreed to have us visit on one of her 'non-open' days..it's all about color here and this lady does not mess around.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOh! Thank you Kathy! (DD loves color just this way...I think Keeyla would be a wonderfully appropriate baby girl's name...Hmmm, could be a boy.)

There are gardens, and then there are GARDENS! This is a wonderful GAHDEN! I'm sure it changes constantly.

One of the things I love most about this group is their appreciation for the many varied aesthetics in gardening. I am breathless looking at the colors; the vividness of it all, and the relentless, sparkling sunlight bouncing off those colors. Just beautiful.

Filled with regret... (and the remnanats of jealousy... I remain a fading shade of green).

This was an awesome garden, definitely different. Keela was very gracious and generous. She even let us wander through her house and told me to look at her bathroom.

It looks like an extremely interesting garden. I think her pot ghetto is much prettier than mine.

Johnny on the Spot...here's her bathroom:

I'll add a link to the rest of my Keeyla photos (just the good ones! It was sunny out and hard to capture) below so that you can browse at your leisure and I won't choke this thread with pictures.

All the pics are wonderful, but my favorite is the the one with the leaves and painted boards-just amazing!
