The Vatansever Family Cottage

Based on the title,  you are probably thinking we have purchased a cottage, however that is not the case.  For many years hubby and I were thinking and mentally constructing the perfect back and front yard  the family would enjoy and here is the story behind the final outcome.

Last year we took a family vacation to Turkey and I have to admit our backyard was completely inspired by the summer homes in Turkey.  Most families (mainly  upper class)  have two homes, one located in the city where they work and go to school and the other is a beach house located by the sea.  We wanted to create the same atmosphere in our own backyard less the Ocean. To be honest with you I am very happy with the end result.  Here are a few photos I would love to share with all of you.

This is how the portion of the backyard looked from my bedroom.

This is the Gazebo being built.

This is my handy husband. I have to mention and also give credit to myself when building the gazebo.  Because I took the photos, there is no evidence I had a hand in building the gazebo and let me tell you without my help hubby would not have been able to do all of that by himself... just saying.  

Here he is with the well earned beer :o)

Here is the final result. 

My Pink and purple Hydrangeas, LOVE THEM !!!

OK, now moving on the the front yard.  I promised I would update you all with the final results of our front yard and here is the  before and after pictures.

My mini planter barrel.

Hope you liked all the photos I posted, now you all know what I had been up to for the past two months.   From here on I will be enjoying my morning coffee you know where ; o)

Ohhh Gosh ! Tek kelimeyle enfes bi ev ve bahçe ve görüntü. Allah nazarlardan korusun enfes bi eviniz var, keşke benimde öyle bi evim olsa ilerde,senden bahçe dizaynı ile ilgili fikirde çalardım.Ağız tadınız hiç bozulmasın,sağlıcakla kalın güle gülede oturasınız işalah.
