Okay, I've been MIA for a few days and this is why......
I took my boys to Naples, where my mother was staying at the Naples Grande Resort for a building conference. So while she was in meetings all day, I went to the beach and pool!
And we sat pool side a lot....
I would just love to have a begonvilla arbor like this one.
Tanner was on his surf board all day.
And I took a stack of House Beautiful and Better Homes & Garden magazines to read....but I did go down the slide a few times.
I loved the large planters with the ferns.
I think I might just have to find some of these green anthurium for the dinning room table.
Do any of you watch Jamie Durie on The Outdoor Room? I just LOVE him!!! Not just for his good looks or his Australian accent....shhhh don't tell my husband I said that.
Well while driving home on I-75 I saw this.....
It totally made me think of Jamie, how he looks for architectural landscapes and buildings, then goes and builds an AMAZING back yard taking the inspiration from a larger concept like this this one. If I was trying to hide out some neighbors I would do something like this.
