There is a wide variety of front gardens in view as one wanders around town. I find myself drawn to arbors and white picket fences with plenty of plantings. Here’s another example of an abundant front yard, complete with fountain, bench seating, trellises, zen rock sculpture, and blooms a-plenty! Enjoy.

A pretty bench to sit and enjoy a pretty garden.
An attractive and colorful brick-paver path leads to the front door.

Blooms on both sides of the fence.
A blend of English, formal and zen feel on this side.
The side yard gets green thumb treatment as well.
A wide mix of elements adds much charm to this garden.
This garden caught my eye as I walked down a street in Hopkins. It offers the perfect blend of flowers, shrubs, chairs, lawn, and the charming, white picket fence. The array of plants with their numerous colors and shapes are a sight to admire. Everything looked healthy and well-tended. It was clear that the owner put time, energy and love into this space.
Plantings are located both inside and outside the fencing.
The curb appeal is greatly enhance by this garden.
These bright roses were in abundance along the fence and the arbor.
These pink roses peek out from around other greenery in the garden.
Blooming beauty all along the fence.
(I used my cell phone camera so the photos in this post aren’t the best.)
The window boxes extend the garden to the exterior of the home.
The trimmed shrubbery next to the house
bring an architectural aspect to the garden.
Note the exposed branches on the underside of the shrubs.
