Anybody Want to Buy a Minature Gondola?

The theme for the 2007 Antique and Garden Show was Italian Gardens.  Each garden was based on a city.  My husband's city was Venice.
Welcome, come stroll through our garden.

You might recognize those hand cut stones from previous gardens.  I'm sure we will use them again and again. 

The gondola was built by by friends from some of the left over panels from the Labyrinth garden.  Working nights and weekends, friends and family painstakingly constructed a half scale gondola.   These gardens would not happen if it wasn't for the help of our friends and family.

Only Best Use of Color award this year.

 Now, who wants to bid on a slightly used gondola?


  1. Another beautiful garden. Would love to have these all at my house. They would not look so beautiful for very long though, in this desert climate and with my not so green thumb.

  2. What lenghts you (and your husband) have gone to for these shows! Thanks for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

  3. Hi Dianne, Such a beautiful garden display. Hubby and I were married in Venice so of course your post got my attention.
