August Garden Party

Welcome back for our August Garden Party!
 
Elizabeth and Co.

To celebrate summer, we're hosting a monthly garden party. And gosh, here it is August already! The July Garden Party was filled with beautiful inspiration.  I hope you had a chance to go touring. I know I had such fun seeing your outdoor spaces . Here are just a few links that caught my eye .....

Celilia from My Thrift Store Addiction shared her charming secret garden - the source of her creative inspiration!


 

Want to learn more about hydrangeas? Read Donna's post over at The Radish Patch. She attended a Master Gardener Workshop.

 


You will love the lush and full gardens over at Custom Comforts!




Laurel from The North End Loft found that looking through the camera lens gave her a fresh perspective in her garden!




Start out front and take a little garden tour with the talented Meg over at Oliver and Rust!

 

 
And after your tour, you can sit back and relax in Meg's beautiful Outdoor Room!




These bright and sunny Adirondack chairs from Deb at Lake Girl Paints are perfect for enjoying the view!


And Kim from Made In A Day shared a these quick and easy DIY rope lanterns that are perfect for your porch or patio!

 
Thanks so much to everyone who shared their garden inspiration with us in July!

Now on to this month's party.....
 
*Link up any outdoor or garden related projects you'd like to share - what's growing in your yard or garden, patio gardens, landscaping ideas, outdoor craft projects, garden furniture, bringing the outdoors in, garden fresh recipes and of course we love pretty porches and patios too!

*A link back would be appreciated, especially if you'd like to be considered for a feature.
 
*We'll launch a new party on the first of each month. Feel free to link up as often as you like.
 
Why not take Laurel's advice and take a walk through your garden with your camera in hand! We'd love to see what's happening out there!
