on saturday henry and i met up with auntie beth and took a stroll through olde towne portsmouth. we checked out a shop i've been wanting to visit which carries gorgeous stuff for the garden; including cast iron urns, trellises, beautiful stone benches, enormous glazed pots, and even awesome stone and iron creatures... i so need a squirrel- not for the yard, but for my mantle. the shop has a beautiful little courtyard that is just so peaceful- a bubbling fountain, stone and iron benches, formal- but not too stuffy, sort of french-inspired landscaping. oh how i would love to duplicate this look in my own backyard. from there we walked on to the couthouse galleries to check out their sculpture garden. a lovely day.
