Courtyard inspiration

93c5e796960db6c6430f093f70dc7627-1After dining al fresco across Italy, spending time in my Mother’s rose garden and my Aunt Tery’s magnicent jungle fountain Garden, and realizing that my favorite part of my yard was not, in fact, the sunny deck, but the space of soft moss under the lilac trees and tucked between the tree house and ferns…I realized that my ideal outdoor space would be a woodland garden courtyard. Lucky for me The Burrow has a slate patio with a wee forest of lilacs and a big dogwood and rambling paths just waiting for my very own touches. I am so excited! Anyone have a fountain, terra cotta pots, or a small fire urn that needs a new home?

Here’s some of my pinterest inspiration as of late…
