Follow the Green Stone Road

G I was driving down the road, minding my own business, when this home’s charming driveway made me stop and reach for my camera.This welcoming entry says, “Follow the Green Stone Road!” The monochromatic color scheme is so calming and soothing. This garden begins curb side and continues down the driveway to the front door. I love the curve in the drive that creates hidden garden rooms only revealed as you meander down the drive. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Green, green and more green—just a touch of white

    Fabulous, Lissy. Clearly you made yourself at home. I’m surprised you didn’t get yourself invited in for breakfast!

    bet there are tire tracks in the road in front of this house from folks stopping to drool. Amazing, have never seen anything like it. And likely environmentally friendly I suppose as well. This likely to go viral on Pinterest!

    Lissy,
    I love that house and driveway! Droolworthy for sure! I have to credit you with restraint. I would have been tempted to drive right on to the back to see what was there!!!
