MY HOLLYWOOD GARDEN


About three years ago Gregory Han from the ever wonderful Apartment Therapy appeared at my door to take  pictures for a house and garden tour. I was so excited I was like a teenager. I ran from room to patio to deck. He on the other hand was calm, like a ballet dancer with a camera, strolling around snapping pictures. Me, not so calm, chirping away about the clouds and rain. Wringing my hands and thinking shut up Kevin and let the man do his job. Well he did and I was thrilled. Thank you again Gregory Han! Here are a few pictures of the garden in the rain. Soon I hope, I'll show more, until then it's tax time and more rain.

LOVE the use of color in your garden! Im not sure if you've read it on my blog, but Turquoise is my 'signature' color and that solid wall with tiki lights and cactus Is wonderful!

Thanks Mick. I did read turquoise blue was your signature color. Mine as well, probably due to childhood on Galveston Island and all it's funky colors. Did you get the pictures I sent you. Those autograghs are from Mann's Chinese Theater. Thousands of tourist, it took me forever to find Bette Davis.

Thank you for this tour. I love you house & garden so much. Your garden is as colorful as mine is green & your house is as classic & color splashed as mine is deconstructionist & neutral.

May I have a tour sometime?

We are in Apartment Therapy... but I didn't realize it until a Google search of the Husband's name:
