I've always enjoyed seeing pictures of your garden here and there, Holly, so I was delighted to take this extended tour and read a more detailed description of the beds and other features.

The bubbler is fabulous!

Glorious Holly & Ric! I agree with Lin --- a lot of work went into that & it really shows. Being from Florida I'm so jealous of your lovely boulders. Lovey dubby
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

You've put an amazing amount of thought and work into your beautiful gardens. My favorite features are the arbors, the hedge with the walk through arch, and the watering can in the pond with all of those beautiful water loving plants. And the pathways which connect so many of the areas. It's all very well done and beautiful. It all looks very restful, but I know that you probably don't have a lot to time to be resting.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

I'll be back to visit HollyAnn and hubby's garden this summer. So beautiful and refreshing. It will be a nice respite from my 115 degree heat in Phoenix!
Thanks for the tour!

Thank you everyone. We really enjoy our gardens and the time we spend designing and working on them. There is much more to do I don't think we will ever be finished. It really helps that both Ric and I love to garden and he can build all the things that I dream up.

Holly, how wonderful it was to stroll through your garden via photos. It is all so lovely.
I remember seeing photos when you first started the gazebo area. What an amazing place it has turned into.
Thank you for sharing all of it.

How lovely to have another tour through your garden so soon after my recent visit, although, no photos can do justice to the garden "in person". Wonderful article! You have inspired me to get out in this heat and keep plugging away with the planting!!!

I also got to see Ric and Holly's garden a week ago when they hosted a plant swap - just fabulous! I've been following their various projects over the years through photos, but seeing it in person was a whole different kind of perspective. All I could say was WOW! I can't make up my mind which feature was my favorite. I had to smile at the blue egg bubbler - one time Holly posted a picture of a robin sitting on it, like it was so proud to have hatched that enormous egg LOL! It was cool and relaxing sitting in the shade of the gazebo, the new green house was wonderful, the bath tub water feature was unusual and absolutely perfect in that spot... oh, I could go on and on. Thanks for the garden tour Sharon and Holly, it made the swap weekend come to life all over again. Terri
