Dr. Wetz's Beautiful Garden

My bff Liz was down from VT one weekend.  I was still recovering from that awful cold so I was unable to do lunch with the girls, but Russell & I went over to her parents' house so that I could see her, they could meet Russell and so I could shoot her father's beautiful garden & a family photo.

Dr. Wetz has done a beautiful job with both the front and back yard.  The rhodies were in full bloom!






Liz's son gave this dog to his grandfather one year.  She calls it 'The Nightmare Before Christmas Dog'.

This is a small bush shaped like Eeyore, but he needs a bit of a trim!


"The Love Shack" as they call it!!!   Dr. Wetz built this.  

Such a lovely home.  The inside is beautiful as well.  I spent a lot of time here when I was a teenager.

And a great picture of my best friend since 3rd grade and her folks!!!

  1. What a peaceful garden. I like all the little touches. I really like that little house (the love shack) with its ivy on the roof and window boxes! Thanks for sharing this, JoJo.

  2. It is wonderful to have a BFF, they are certainly a gem to be treasured.

    I love the garden and think the sculptures add a touch of charm and whimsy, transforming a beautiful garden into a magical place. I would like to get a gnome or two for my own garden but my hubby wants to get a 4' statue of a Yeti. He's sort of weird in a way. :D

    1. I have to side with your hubby on that one. I wish I'd gotten a bigfoot carving when I was out west. We have pink flamingoes and gargoyle out front and a few things in the back on the deck. I'm not really a gardener!

  3. ps - The photo of Liz and her parents is a very good one. They look like really wonderful people and I'm sure the time you spent with them was both enjoyable and memorable.

  4. Very nice. I really like the flowers' healing colors. I'm also wondering what stories that "love shack" has to tell. =) Be well, JoJo.

  5. Hi Jojo,
    That is one fine yard!! Compliments to the Master Gardener.
    I wouldn't want to go inside if I had a yard like that. Bet you loved
    walking around it.
    Cheers, Anita.

    1. Yes it is beautiful and I would probably spend more time outside if my garden looked like that. Unfortunately I can't seem to grow anything but mold and weeds!

  6. What a gorgeous garden. Having no garden any more it is lovely to see. We do at least have a park outside our windows.

  10. I'm honestly not a green-thumb owner, so I am envious of people with beautiful gardens. My husband, however, has a knack for gardening, and he keeps our little rose bed colorful. The photos you shared are spectacular. How serene! Thanks for sharing.

  11. Wow! So beautiful! Love "Zero" and all the quirky touches in the garden. What a fantastic place - so much hard work must have gone into it over the years.

  12. Beautiful pictures JoJo, we've been pretty hot here in Mich. for a while now. Just this week we cooled to the 70's.
