Garden Inspiration.......

No matter where you live, there are times throughout the year where it's better to be outside than inside.   For me, living in Houston means that the best time to enjoy the outdoors comfortably is in the Spring and Fall.  That's when the mornings are cool and the humidity is relatively low.  Lately I've been looking for inspiration for outdoor spaces and I've collected a few images that I want to share with you.  Maybe you are looking for garden inspiration as well?  I'll be painting and finishing up my closet this weekend (I will do the reveal next week) and then taking some time off next week to do some other projects.  Whatever your plans are, take sometime to enjoy the outdoors.

Loving the color and feel of this space don't you?  

What a great space to read a book or take an afternoon nap.  Love the contrast of the chartreuse and the licorice colored walls.  Photo:  Thomas Story
How lush is this?  Tucking succulents into a palm tree.  Brilliant Idea.  Photo: Sunset 

These potted succulents are drought tolerant and lots of color and textrure too.
