Around The Garden World - Day 24 (Westhaven)

 Several years ago I helped a friend turn her tiny courtyard into welcoming retreat. She lived in the charming community of Westhaven, one of middle Tennessee's most delightful neighborhoods to live in. She wanted a sitting area, a potting area, and colorful flowers.
Can you say, "welcome to my cozy courtyard?"

 This old table Pamela found was perfect for a planting table.
 This turned out to be one of the coolest sinks - Pamela's potting area. Check out the old pigeon roost that was used for shelving and storage.
 The family crest on her gate door.

 My friend Pamela used the old hutch in the background as her potting shed.
This  broken piece of marble countertop was perfect for a little table top placed on top of this clay urn.

Wonderful! Tasteful, cozy and elegant! Love the potting table and the marble-top little table, and the gate, and the....everything!
