I don't know if you know this, but we have a pretty fabulous property. It is an acre and a half, with an old (1930) barn, a chicken coop, a great playhouse that is (nearly) finished, a fire pit, and all sorts of established trees - fruit and otherwise. I would say that it has a LOT of potential. Sadly, what it doesn't have is a resident with really great vision... You see, I can find photos of snippets of things that I like, and would love to incorporate, but to envision the entire thing as I would like it to be just isn't in me. (you see, I am well aware of my limitations...)
Right now, in my own personal dream world, I would wiggle my nose - Samantha style (you must be at least 35 to get that reference...) and a large shade tree would appear just north-west of our fire pit - creating the perfect afternoon shade for a wonderful dining area. Sadly, I can stand up there wiggling my nose all day long and yet, no tree appears...
I have found various outdoor photos that inspire me greatly. I love looking at them and imagining how I could incorporate these looks into our property. Now if only I could get that money tree out there to bloom...
These two really know how to put an outdoor area together~
I just love the feel of this photo. I imagine listening to the silence, broken only by bird song~
You can never use too much linen~
