What a way to welcome in our new community. God's timing is always perfect, it turns out that we got here just in time for the 2017 Spring Homer Garden Tour. This annual event is put together by the local botanical gardens, of course my first place to check out for inspiration. We had the most amazing day. I'm not sure what was prettier getting lost on beautiful winding country side roads or discovering one of a kind garden gems and little private secret gardens hiding behind old reclaimed farm houses.
The first home on the tour was Jodie & Bill Durden's, she graciously greeted and welcomed us, you know gardeners, when we get talking about plants..... The Durden gardens are blessed with lots of sun and shade loving plants. The front courtyard welcomes visitors with a tropical feel and the most beautiful blooms. In every corner there was something beautiful to discover, I loved the water features. This home owner loves color and she combined them well. My favorite pop of color was her bright and happy yellow garage side door. It was ankered by two black topiary planters, oh so beautiful. Enjoy the tour!
