My favorite garden/home store is The Gardener in Berkeley. I finally had a chance to visit their Healdsburg location last year and was not disappointed. This is the only location that has a garden and it was well worth a visit.
Sunflowers will definitely be on the plant list after seeing these. I could have spent hours wandering down these paths.
I just came across these images again and it made me pine for summer in the wine country. The ball sculptures were all over the site, they would really make a modern statement in an edible garden.
Hidden paths made by sunflowers and pots would be another nice idea to try.
The outdoor lounge areas were equally inspiring. A little sculpture, some old furniture all bordered by greenery.
This was my favorite spot of all: the outdoor fireplace made modern with the addition of two bright red chairs. It doesn't take much to make a space inviting.
Of course, it never hurts to add a hammock!
Or some amazing sculpture. One can dream, though.
