Pictures from the Duck Pond Garden Tour 2009

Katherine and I did Atlanta's Peachtree Heights East Duck Pond Garden Tour today. We toured from about 11 until 2 in a light rain. It was wonderful. The sun would have been nice. But the clouds and rain intensified the green hues I think. At the bottom of the post is my slide show with nearly 80 pictures. They turned out "real good" as we say down here. For fans of French, don't miss the slide show.

The duckpond is a jewel one block from Peachtree Street. People get married on this lawn.

Here is Katherine with designer John Delong. He does insides and outsides. Email me: terry at and I'll put you in touch.

There was plenty to make me happy, including these little blue flowers

This is a great composition but I just took the picture:

We'll come back on a warm Atlanta evening for dinner.

This side yard is perfect for a potting locker and table.

Nothing like some orange pop.

Do watch the slide show full screen. These are some of my best pictures.

Thanks so much,


  1. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the pictures of this tour, and wish I could have attended in person. There are so many things to some of the designs incorporated old trees that were already part of the landscape, a lantern I spied, a lovely window box, the pea gravel in some of the designs. I wish the weather had been better, I am sure there was so much planning and organization that went into this event!

    Thanks for the tour, great post.

  2. Fortunately, we bought our tickets online - before it started raining - so there was not stopping us. Some of the docents said they had a good crowd.

    About 2pm, it started raining harder. At least we didn't track mud into anybody's house.

    What a great neighborhood.

  3. Terry,
