The Back Yard

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Let's escape the wet, dreary weather of the past couple of days
for just a few moments,
and take a little trek down to the Sunshine State, visit The Back Yard.

Mr. Ramblings and I took a short trip to Florida last month,
and stumbled upon The Barn,
a fascinating complex consisting of an antique store, two intriguing gift shops,
 restaurant, and a plant nursery.

The post highlighting the gift shops can be seen {here}.

You may imagine you're dab smack in the middle a tree house, 
while browsing through the shop part of The Back Yard,
where a huge tree grows right through the center!

The grounds are covered with gorgeous flowers, unique cement statues,
a variety of planters, and metal decorative pieces.

I adore the foxglove pictured below, plant I've always wanted to try but never have.

are they not precious, {below}!

I love Savannah Girl Statues.
One day I may break down and buy one.  :)

I came so close to bringing home a smaller version of the sweet girl,
which I'd never seen this size before.

I sure regret leaving her behind!

Did you know that Saturday is
World Gardening Naked Day!

Nope, I kid you you not!
{I won't subject ya'll to an image! ha!}

It's celebrated internationally the first Saturday of May, annually.
I don't think I'll be participating!  :)

Anyhow, hope you enjoyed the tour of  The Back Yard.
And don't forget, the gift shops at The Barn,
 featuring beautiful home decor can be seen {here}.

Lots of rich inspiration in their over-the-top displays.


So excited to announce...

  5. What a treasure trove Rhonda! Someone has a very creative imagination around that place, it's a fairy tale wonder land! As for National Garden Naked day, well I am not a gardener, can't even grow weeds, so phew, I don't have to participate!
