The transformation of my design studio is so amazing that it needs few words:
The day we took possession.
After we renovated it last Spring six weeks later.
After the flagstone was installed this Spring.
Here's an updated picture in June 2014
Here's another angle while shooting pictures so that my talented Landscape Architect MaryAnne White could start the design all the way from New York.
During the demolition of the front and back yard. Nothing was sacred it all had to be ripped out with this much concrete everywhere.
Wait for it. . .
Ta ta da da!!!!
Here's the before again.
All winter long, we ran back and forth from the house to the office. It hurt my eyes every time, haha.
Thank you Mary Anne for your vision!
With this kind of transformation, you can see why I consulted her on every detail. This is not what I do, I didn't know a single thing about plants. Prior to shopping and selected all the plant material, I would see flowers and plants and just think "That's pretty". Now I walk down the street or into someone else's yard and say:
Aha, Rose of Sharon in purple, lovely.
That's one way to clip Cherry Laurel shrubs.
Bobo Hydrangeas, wow those are huge! Mine will look like those soon!
I have a whole new language now, I love it!
Have a great week my lovelies!
