The Giusti Garden in Verona, Italy

her Prince Charming.
As you can see from the photos there was not a lot of color in the garden - who needs it when you have this to look at every day? The day we were there, a professional photographer and models dressed as Cinderella and Prince Charming were being photographed. What a perfect backdrop for a fairy tale photo shoot.
It is said that garden design, originally, was spiritually inspired to represent heaven on earth. If heaven looked like this, I would not be disappointed. Then again, I'm trying to make my own back yard into my own little version of heaven -- and it looks nothing like this!

more character, charm, and slime.
|Love a good parterre maze. Almost lost my wife forever in this one.|
|The light in this garden in the late afternoon was stunning. Almost wish we could have seen it later when the sun was a bit lower.|
