A Storybook Garden: Part I
Gigi’s house is in the middle of Florida, but looks like it’s in the middle of Europe. The house is French Normandy architecture and was built in 1928. (Her small city was incorporated in 1925). The house is registered with the National Register of Historic Places . The National Preservation Act of 1966 is a national program to identify, preserve and protect America’s historic and archeological resources.
She has a fence to provide privacy and keep out the alligators (dinosaurs). The fence is not quite finished in these photos.
GiGi’s yard has something new every time we visit. She has so many clever and unique ideas everywhere. Both of my kids cry every time we leave. Her gardens make us feel so close to nature and provide a constant reminder of how important it is to stay connected with the outdoors. We especially love the Great Horned Owls that call her yard home and watch every move we make. I think they might like us too.
Come grow with us!
