Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Design

thanks to Snow from The Snow Melts Somewhere for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday

Design is everywhere. We often travel far and wide to capture beautiful design elements in architecture when there are wonderful design elements right under our noses here at home.

Design in London, England

The Gardens at Montgomery’s Inn

….while waiting for the bread to bake I took a stroll around the inn to check out the gardens

On the east side of the inn the tulips are in full bloom.IMG-2474

The front of the Inn is green and lush. The irises are already withering but the peonies are just about ready to bloom and the lilac blossoms are fully open.IMG-2475

The west side is very shady. The phlox spread out a beautiful blanket of purple flowers and some of the bakers changed hats and became gardeners while waiting for the bread to come out of the oven.
