A simple European style garden


This very soothing garden is actually the entrance to an architect's firm.  The plantings are simple, with lacecap hydrangeas (seen here a bit past their prime) tucked between a line of boxwood and a wall cloaked in vines.  If I remember correctly, the architect bought the entire garden display at the Southeastern Flower Show one year and transferred the elements to his space.  In summer, grapes hang from the vines over the arch to the right.  This would be a nice place to have lunch and sit and read a book.
