Monday Inspiration: Gorgeous Gardens

Spring brings beautiful blossoms, buds, and plants and my home base of Houston has some of the most gorgeous gardens I’ve ever seen.

One of my favorites is the Bayou Bend at the Museum of Fine Art, Houston. Bayou Bend features seven gardens that are like fabulous museum exhibits themselves. The colors and forms are truly inspirational!

These are just a few of the marvelous gardens on the property that originally belonged to Ima Hogg and her brothers Will and Mike. Ima created these gorgeous gardens and turned over their upkeep to the River Oaks Garden Club, who introduced organic gardening at the site.

These gardens change with every season, making them a perennial favorite of mine. What is your favorite neighborhood garden?


Warmly,
