Over the next few Fridays I'll be sharing a garden from the Old Louisville Hidden Treasures Garden Tour held last weekend in the St. James and Belgravia Courts area of historic Louisville. Of the ten gardens featured, all had wonderful tall privacy fences around these small gardens. Each fence was decorated with plants and art pieces that reflects the gardener's style. Yesterday I wrote an intro to the tour if you want to scroll back one post. I especially highlighted the old architecture of this Victorian neighborhood.
The back landing for Garden 6 had a young wisteria vine climbing up and over the pergola that shelters the first of many old Victorian doors, many with stained glass and grille work.
Small rock waterfall beside the house provides cooling sounds of running water when seated out in the garden.
Eye level window on the side of the house features lace curtains and Victorian grille work, the design a variation of the fleur-de-lis, symbol of Louisville.
Rudbeckia Goldstrum--black eyed Susan--along with lavender and Russian sage. Metal pot was nestled by the back door.
Another view of the mirrored fence with carefully chosen trees that won't outgrow the small area for a long time.
Each garden on the tour was marked with a "gardener" who owns and tends the garden. Garden 6 is only two years old. Amazing!
For those of you who came back for this second Friday Fence post, thank you especially. There are so many unique gardens and fences in this area of Old Louisville. I hope you won't grow tired of them too soon. For the remainder of July I'll try to restrain my enthusiasm and still show you these treasures.
