In my usual fashion, took hundreds of pictures at this year's Azalea Garden Tour here in Wilmington, NC, Did not have time to edit, etc., so they are "as taken", not photographic masterpieces, they are mostly pictoral reminders of what I have seen. Lots of garden rooms/decorating ideas here. Spent all day yesterday on the tour and enjoyed it thoroughly, if you are interested, my pictures are here:

Pauline...thanks for the very lovely tour. There's so much going on and all of it beautiful! Can you elaborate about #1763? That lattice shot is so pretty...I've never seen any quite like it. I just love garden tours!

Tanya, I think you meant #1777? The latticework is on the Kenan House (owned by UNCW) lived in by their Chancellor. I don't have any specific info on that beautiful latticework but I did find that the restoration work was done by:

I love latticework and I do "own" a book with wonderful examples of latticework. The Lattice Gardener by William C. Mulligan and "yikes" just googled it and found the book for sale for $108.00 at: http://www.worldretailstore.com/item/BE-0025878859.html !! That must be a mistake! However, also found it for sale for $7.11 at:

Probably a lot more info than you wanted, but, -----

Glad you gals enjoyed the tour, and Monique, my garden was on the Azalea tour in 2005 (see pictures here: http://s2.photobucket.com/albums/y24/paulinepdm/MyGardenTourPics/ and again on the fall tour in 2005: http://s2.photobucket.com/albums/y24/paulinepdm/Fall%20Tour%20Pictures%2020 05/

Quite enough, now people can tour through my pictures which is a whole lot easier since I can take picture of only the things I want you to see! LOL

and believe me, I would much rather be a visitor to other's gardens. A lot less work.

See, Pauline, I liked both the basket and the lattice...sorry I didn't make that more clear. That basket is very attractive...espcially now that I know what it is. Thanks, and I'm sorry for the confusion.

Mimi, that is the Wise Alumni House (owned by UNCW), not sure what movie you are talking about, but I don't think it was used for any movie Oprah made. Lots of properties in Wilmington have been used in filmmaking though since the Capra Studio is here. Glad you enjoyed the pictures.

I enjoyed this charming and beautiful tour.
The details! Blue hydrangea, the birdhouses, the Belles---did they stay at the homes all day? Were they garden club members or homeowners or?
The individual with the Dewalt saw, making a trellis?

Denise, I posted this information on another board when sharing the tour pictures--regarding the belles, etc:
A little bit of history regarding the Belles, and the Cape Fear Garden Club, and the Garden Tour: Cape Fear Garden Club is in it's 83rd year, this year is the 54th garden tour sponsored by the club during Azalea Festival. The belles were added "officially" in 1969, (seven in that year), growing to well over 100 now. All local HS seniors and juniors can apply and we have many more applications than selectees. Club members daughters/grandaughters are automatically selected! Then a club member must sponsor a non related applicant. Seniors are then selected first (since this is the last time they can apply), then juniors if there are any more spaces.
It is a very big deal here and they are beautiful accents to the garden. They have a schedule, most get to sit in all the gardens over the three day period, but there are shifts and the belles change gardens. More information about the Azalea Festival here:
http://www.capefeargardenclub.org/azalea_garden_tour.htm

Mimi, before we moved here, there was a two part made for TV series in which Oprah was Executive Producer (don't think she was in the film as an actress) "The Wedding" but it was filmed at the Murchison House in Wilmington, near as I can tell: http://www.murchisonhouse.com/about.html
