One Saturday Two Garden walks and a rug show

The first garden was five acres of lovely gardens

and lovely berries

and this guy couldn't wait for us to leave so he could get back on his rock. I treated a friend who is retiring(lucky her) to high tea after the garden walk, which was yummy and just lovely.

Then another friend and I were going to a rug and garden walk but she got sick so my sweet hubby filled in for her and oh my was he ever happy he did. First it was a house, garden, and rug tour.

This house was jaw dropping beautiful!The husband and wife hook. He travels a lot and takes his hooking on the road with him.
He hooks huge rugs! I met him and his wife what lovely people and oh the talent.

The gardens where just amazing. I took lots and lots of pictures as you can see a lot of the color comes from bushes and trees

There were more rugs in this one place than I have seen my whole life I think. 

This was on the outside of their barn. (For display only)

On boards in the garden

And more boards and there are more and more!
Really and truly how beautiful is this!!! this was among the trees in the painted fern garden sigh....... 
We made several trips around to be sure we didn't miss a thing.
I will have more pictures for you next time. 
Today we are 50 degrees and the wind is blowing a gale, we have the fireplace going. Really summer where are you?

A rug and garden tour? Perfect combination. The rugs are just beautiful. I can only imagine they were so much better in person. I'm with you on the cold. Im just resisting the urge to put the furnace on for a few minutes. It's crazy.

Wow, what an inspirational tour. I would have loved to be there, lucky you. Oh my, the gardens are lovely too.
Are the rugs all hooked by this couple?
Thanks for sharing.

Rugs and Pugs said...

It felt like April here this morning, but in the afternoon a bright light was coming from the sky. I kind of wondered what it was :)
Oh, those garden tours look amazing. And all those rugs. WOWZA! Lucky you to have seen them.
Hugs :)

You must have thought that you died and went to heaven with all those beautiful rugs and gardens! What a fun day! So much time and talent in all of those rugs. It's been cool and very wet here. Yesterday it rained constantly and was 60de. No furnace needed but it was chilly to the bone! Hopefully by the end of the week it might hit 80. My pool is just taking up space these days! Take care Cathy!
