And make sure you invite the Bishop’s children (Dahlias).
Last weekend my brother rented a vacation home here in Franklin, TN, to house his big ol’ family while they helped us celebrate my son’s wedding. They stayed an extra couple of days so we all visited over at their cool digs. I walked in the back yard and new immediately that I was in a gardener’s home.
Check out these containers and fun yard art that surrounded the pool and goldfish pond.
And the color on these hydrangeas had me just a little jealous. These was my kind of vacation home!
I saw these at Perch in Brentwood. Low maintenance, simple: lirope has never been on my list of plants to use individually in a planter, but I really liked this effect.
I loved the containers on this house!

This is ‘Hula Girl’ tropical hibiscus with red verbena and red geraniums and gold lantana.
Hopefully no one has noticed but I actually missed a day. Well, actually two. But the last few weeks have been pretty exciting around the wise gardens, all leading up to this incredible day. And especially the last two days – as mother of the groom my days have been delightfully full as family has come in from all over the country for this special day. The laptop stayed closed and family became my total focus until I fell exhausted into bed. Until today. As I sit in the pew here, groomsmen and hubby busy with picture taking, rehearsal dinner a blur of laughter and tears, flowers all completed for the ceremony, I realize that for one more son my job is done. “Mothering” is no longer required, rather my role now is to just to be Momma… and Momma-in-law. So enjoy what I get to look at while I wait for the guest to arrive. And thanks for sharing this moment with me!
