Eclectic Garden Tour – Three Dogs in a Garden

Eclectic Garden Tour at Three Dogs in a Garden

“Like housework, a garden is never done.”

Wise words from Jennifer of Three Dogs in a Garden.

Not only is she an avid gardener, she also is an amazing photographer capturing her friends and neighbors gardens in all of their glory.


Here, Jennifer takes us on a tour of the charming garden of her friend Beth and it starts on a patriotic front porch.

Climbing vines are the star – as well as the trio of stars above the door.

Even the pond gets in on the action with a boat load of greenery.

  4. Absolutely loved the tour! So many fun things to look at. The recycling, all the climbing vines and pond…amazing. We have storms coming in tonight, so the bugs drove me in from my garden. Had to refill the hummingbird and butterfly feeders. Gotta keep them happy! Always enjoy your posts Kelly…

    I always enjoy the tours you feature no matter what tour is of. So many gardening ideas if person is so inclined. Get the urge but then it seems to wane when it gets too hot out. Later when it’s cooler the skeeters are out in droves, Allergic to bug spray so don’t get out much in evening even tho it’s one of favorite times to be out, that and early mornings.
    Is anybody else leaning towards being ready for Fall? Seems like once the kids start school I ‘m thru with summer. Shame on me. I do like winter even tho I can’t hang laundry out then. Love to hang laundry out. We almost always have good breeze so laundry dries pretty quickly. Happy weekend Kelly

  6. Thanks for putting together such a nice feature post Kelly!

  7. What a gorgeous garden filled with many wonderful creative and whimsical touches…love the trellis with the rubber boots!…however, love everything!…Such magnificent garden as a result of her labor of love!

  8. I am such a fan of antique accents in the garden, + I think that less is definitely more. These examples are all very tasteful + well-done!
