but also … the green…
Snaps from our garden… yesterday… xv
Wonderful photos Vicki, this and your previous post had me reaching for one of your books immediately to see how the garden has grow.
The mist in the background of the first photo is very enchanting.
I absolutely love your garden Vicki, you have created a sanctuary.
So incredibly lovely. Sigh. I just want to pull out a blanket and fall asleep under that willow tree! And I am fascinated by the building in the last photo. A former bergerie? An old lavoir?
Enjoy the sun today!
You are most welcome to have a little kip there Heather … An old chicken house… now our gardening shed… xv
Oh my! How happy those chickens must have been in such a chic little house!
And for now, we are all taking a siesta with the shutters drawn…zzz…
Oh so beautiful Vicki. I would not be able to stop spending all my time photographing it!
So beautiful Vicki, thanks you for inviting me into your stunning garden! Still dreaming of your last post with all the blooming Lavender, can it be grown indoors, the rain here (Scotland) so far this July has been relentless?
Have a great day
See this is what I love to see, what a great old chicken house. Thats the kind of building that makes us say “they sure don’t make them like they used to”. I really like the willow in the second picture. Do you know what kind it is? Those hydrangeas will be beautiful when they get a little bigger.
Fantastic. My garden is ALL about the green boxwoods with only an accent of flowers. Therefore in the winter, I can still enjoy the beauty of the greens….so lovely, Vicki!
Your Provençal Garden is so gorgeous! The flowers(yesterday’s post), the plants and the garden shed all comes together perfectly. Just to let you know that I quoted and also linked your post yesterday to my blog post tomorrow about a Herb garden. I hope that is alright?
That is lovely… thank you Pamela… xv
Wow you have a beautiful home and garden. I won’t be posting pictures of my garden anytime soon, what with all the ivy and weeds! :/
Such a serene setting. It looks very relaxing on your farm, even though I know it’s a working farm, the images relax me.
So lovely! That cool shade must be welcome during Provencal summers.
Lovely! I would spend a great deal of time there, especially under the weeping willow, my favorite tree. In fact, if it has a branch low enough to begin the climb, I would probably be IN it!
Lovely! Your garden looks refreshing on a summer day.
Thanks to your inspirational photos and tales of life in Provence we are now basking in the St Remy sunshine, escaping a very cold New Zealand winter.
This is a dream come true – keep on inspiring!!
STUNNING!LOved your reply to Heather…….a chicken coop!I could move in there being the head HEN of the HEN HOUSE!Really lovely setting…………hope your out there now with an apertif!
A little rose with lunch … And now working my way towards as aperitif!
Just lovely……nothing like a gorgeous garden….no matter what size, shape or style.
A place in the shade is just as lovely as a place in the sun. I’m with Heather–that willow tree looks like the perfect canopy for a log summers nap! What a gorgeous sanctuary you’ve created.
Absolutely beautiful! I can only imagine the pleasure your garden brings you each day. The shot of the garden with the mist in the background is my favorite!
Charming, peaceful, a place to dream. Thanks for sharing. I wish my beds were so pristine. Our recent heat wave has sort of washed out the green of the grasses, we are edging on brown.
Only one word comes to mind, Stunning! xxpeggybraswelldesign.com
Evocative (first picture) and simply stunning the rest. May you find peace, joy, happiness and solace in your beautiful spaces.
Your next book should be about finding & restoring & living in this beautiful property. This is definitely a book!
I love the dappled shade. Your garden looks so happy & peaceful.
Vicki, your garden is like a little piece of paradise. Its lush and tranquil. Throw a blanket under the shades, reading a great book with some birdsongs from on top of the willow tree, what can be more heavenly than that. xo
What a serene and peaceful space you’ve created outside. I am a huge garden lover and am always calmest when sitting in mine.
I don’t have the amount of lavender that you do in Provence, but started a little kitchen herb garden and can’t wait for my lavender to grow out of control!!!
Thanks for these sunny photos Vicki, they brightened my day…We could do with a bit of sunshine here up north in Holland, it has been raining for weeks now…
Enjoy the sun
I have just seen your last two posts and am sitting here, green with envy !! Your garden is stunning ….. I have just been out to lunch with some friends and, showed them your garden and house and they just drooled ! Show more photos of your garden and home, anytime you like. XXXX
Your green garden photos have cooled the air for me here in very hot Atlanta, Georgia. The garden is truly stunning!
Thank you for posting these wonderful pics.
Ditto what all the others have written! Lucky you Vicki.
the first image with the early morning fog or mist is amazing.
How are you doing? I hope you’re enjoying your summer! Did you get my email? I’ve being wearing the beautiful perfume you sent to me every single day… I can’t leave the house without it anymore. Once again, thank you so much!!!
This post made me dream… I’m so tired today and I wish I could go outside and enjoy the sun. I’ll do that tomorrow!
Thank you for the inspiration…

Your garden is always so inspiring.
So lovely, Vicki! xxoo
Looking absolutely lovely………Maryanne xo
Hi Vicki! This is what they mean when they speak of Paradise!
Seeing the images from this post is like taking a mini vacation! I agree, having a beautiful yard is such a wonderful reprieve from the stress of the world around us.
