Oh, has it ever been hot here in New Jersey. Mid- to high-nineties for the past four or five days, with 90's predicted for the next week. And yet, I think we have been the lucky ones. I know that the south and the midwest have had temps in the 100's, and the mid-Atlantic states had terrible storms over the weekend. I hope and pray all of our blogging friends have been safe! For those of you who have been suffering the heat and wind and rain, here is a little respite for you, courtesy of Mosaic Monday.
My husband and I visited several beautiful gardens in Connecticut last weekend, including the garden of my all-time favorite interior designer, Bunny Williams. I thought you might like to see her beautiful pool house and shade garden. The pool house, built in the Greek Revival style using rustic, bark-covered logs, overlooks some gorgeous Connecticut countryside. As you can see, it includes a working fireplace, and is decorated with stylish wicker Kooboo chairs and twig furniture.
As you leave the pool house, you can follow the path through the natural garden, which leads to a small pond. Along the way, there are lots of places to sit and enjoy the cool shade. Come and sit a while, and enjoy the cool breezes. :)
That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline.net
