Acorn Cottage {Backyard: Spring}

It has been a while since I've shared the backyard of the Acorn Cottage. This post will be somewhat photo heavy, so grab your java and peruse on.

There is no secret that I love green and white in the garden. The rear of the house also features lots of green foliage interspersed with white accents. Since the yard is quite shady, I have used lots of different textured ferns to give interest. As you are aware, our front yard was professionally landscaped in a more formal way. In the backyard, I used many existing plants in a natural way. For spring I added the row of white (White Christmas) caladiums. There are also my favorite boxwoods which edge the garden and add some formality to the beds.

New furniture mixed with old makes the yard appear to have grown naturally over time. Remember, we have lived here since September 2018.

Come to the back and relax. Sit a spell! Sip a cocktail!

Here's how the yard looked when we purchased the home in May:

Spring Backyard, y'all!

Chateau Lapeyre {Pool and Pool house}

I love a good outdoor space, and I have a great one to share with you today. On Good Friday, J and I headed to my sis and BIL's home to dine on boiled crawfish. It was the first time seeing the newly built pool house, and it looks amazing. The pool and pool house blend so well into the backyard of the French-inspired home.

Take a look:

The fire pits are stunning at night.

I cannot wait to see the completed project once the landscape is installed later this week.

King Gator Flag

I recently had a bracket installed on the front post for a flag, and I quickly added my favorite Alexa Pulitzer King Gator flag. I love the color. It is classic New Orleans and looks tres chic with the style of the house. With the winds today, it is moving all about.

King Gator flag, y'all!
