New Orleans courtyard. Brick courtyards on aping afternoons after a rain are great, especially if they are near a sweet olive tree. I'm going to turn my plain courtyard into a Nola courtyard this summer!
Shape ideas for my formal herb garden. Maybe not herbs, but I really like the idea of this kind of structure in the back yard. Pea gravel separates the shaped beds, nice. Choose plants that will thrive in my unfortunate climate.
