House Crush N°41—Garden Crush

english tudor house

English Tudor House Crush!


Wow, is the best way to describe this lovely home. I have lived around the corner from this home for many years now, and I am always amazed by both the home and its lush gardens. The previous owner installed all the existing gardens that have aged to perfection. Viburnums anchor the garden surrounded by endless hedges of boxwood and azaleas. This is the garden in early Spring here in Atlanta—Fall is just as beautiful and colorful—and it inspires me to plant a few viburnums in my North Carolina garden along with a few more boxwood—you can never have enough boxwood!
