Perspectives of a Lady, Gentleman & Dane

Southern Gardens

Hannah Sheflyand

Renovating and decorating a house will not make it a complete and cozy home without some work on the surrounding outdoors.

Have I mentioned how much I love Garden & Gun magazine, the website is now filled with albums of the most beautiful homes, and now I found out, with some gorgeous gardens. Elizabeth Locke has lived in her estate with her husband for 33 years and has spent all that time making the garden she has now, filled with a perfect mix of beautiful flower gardens, vegetable gardens & even a chicken coop.

I love when Elizabeth states “Its not surprising that you never see the phrase ‘brilliant young garder’… it takes a lifetime.” Her full interview can be found here. Based on the photos below it looks like her hard work has really paid off. What do you think?











My dream backyard will be white picket fencing filled with vegetable boxes, local flora, lots of goats (post coming soon), some chickens and ducks and of course a Great Dane secure area. Now I just have to convince Brian to want the same 🙂

What about you? Do you dream of a big yard or enjoy having an apartment with not having to deal with taking care of one?
