Savannah. Charleston. New Orleans. San Antonio. These colonial-era cities inspire the courtyard garden ideal: green and lush, with beautiful plants, pools and fountains, paved with stone, tiles or bricks, & protected by sheltering walls with gates that reveal a table and chairs for cocktails or an al fresco meal...

Reflection of King's College Chapel Tower Old Aberdeen, Scotland

"Whether you tend a garden or not, you are the gardener of your own being, the seed of your own destiny" - The Findhorn Community.
