Good morning SOS’ers! I have been posting interesting gardens and today, I am revealing what I think it takes to have a beautiful garden in Savannah, Georgia………first I think, is a pink house! The bigger the better………with a Spanish Moss tree as well, the bigger the better! I had never seen neighborhoods with all pastel colored houses before and it is quite charming! It’s like living in a watercolor! But, the pink colors are my favorite!
Many gardens will be long and narrow and enclosed behind a garden wall. Most gardens will be in the shade. You want a nice cool place to sit and drink your sweet tea! There will be lots of potted plants for interest…..
and lots of plants with special interest or pops of color that can cascade over a wall or gate……..
Water in the garden is a must too. This is quite the sculpture don’t you think? It looks like hanging ice! Any kind of water feature makes you feel cooler!
A porch on every level is good, so you can keep an eye on your garden!
Shade, shade and more shade is required! Water in the shade helps too!
I hope you have enjoyed my SOS in Savannah!
