One more category challenge accepted from Dawnwriter -

I had this dream to design my own abode but that was impossible to do i in the Metro where land costs were beyond our reach. But as luck would have it a friend of ours pointed out to property that was being sold close to our native land. We went for that and ever since the property came in our possession I started dreaming about it to convert it into a place with a roomy house and a landscaped garden. Being into landscaped design business that was not difficult. And being a lover of nature everything fell in place.

Visiting this place several times I planned the whole thing with the help of an engineer although the design was my own. This whole planning and execution created a memory niche that I will cherish all my life.

your house looks very welcoming and tranquil and the garden adds to its peaceful atmosphere. the green leaves of your plants against the white facade of your house is very calming to the eyes and to the nerves.

Thanks &carmel . I can spend the whole of my life just being around here.

It looks so lovely. I think having greenery around is very important especially if you have kids. I am glad things worked out for you.

Gardening is my passion and to get this environment we gave up our so called glamour life in the Metro.

I like the path leading to your home which looks very cool.

Thanks. The distance from our gate to the house is 50 feet

You are a woman of many talents! The house and the grounds look so inviting and as if they have always been there.

I had written a post earlier where I had uploaded a picture of the house without the exteriors being developed. What you see here is several years old.

What beautiful landscaping. I do wish I had that ability.

The garden is colorful and serene. It looks like just the place to go for a bit of peace to relax.

You are welcome. There you have the green carpet laid for you not necessarily on the floor! :)

We opted to shift out just for this :)
