Whimsical and Beautiful Yards

Saturday I went to Milford, Connecticut's Oyster Fest.  Downtown Milford was a buzz with booths selling beautiful jewelry, art and of course seafood galore. Walking toward the Festival I fell in love with the creative, bohemian yards of the houses that lined the avenues to downtown. 

Burlap tepees, painted fences and flowers tied to fences with burlap make a charming and inviting feel to this front yard.

Beautiful decorations abound: intricate lighting, painted boxes, flowers galore, beautiful antiques.

A pale yellow bench is home to potted flowers. A rustic wagon creates whimsy. A better look at the painted lavender and pale yellow fencing with draping red potted flowers.

Fun and gorgeous. A wheelbarrow proves to be a perfect shelf for vases and potted plants. 

What are your favorite tricks and designs to keep your yard looking beautiful?
