Full disclosure I am not the best photographer by a long shot but spring is my very favorite time of the year and I’m always up for a good house and garden tour. Allergies aside, I love flower gardens and am inspired by the creativity of the landscape designs that I have enjoyed touring over the years. So May has been my official kick off of the house and garden tours that I plan to indulge in over the next several months. If we’re lucky I’m hopeful my photography skills will improve. Even though I was disappointed by the shots I captured in the blinding sun recently, I wanted to share a few from my tour of the British (seen above) and Denmark embassies in D.C. and a local public garden in suburban Maryland.
When it comes to design if you’re ever stumped by what color schemes you should incorporate into your home design I think touring public gardens can be a great source of inspiration.
