It doesn't get any more "Old South" than growing mint for juleps in garden.
That's what oilman Glenn Smith and wife Judy do in the orderly yet vibrant gardens surrounding their new home in The Woodlands, a suburb of Houston.
The pigeonnier is used as a playhouse with a garden of its own, delighting the children.
Arches frame the courtyard.
Antique wrought-iron furniture and the delicate lace of ferns add to the lush and lovely ambience.
A brick path to the home.
Stucco-covered brick columns lead to front door.
Sand alyssum outside the courtyard walls, keeping pansies and violas inside.
Dewy 'Knockout' double pink roses.
Snapdragons add brilliant color.
Larkspur (Consolida ajacis), another garden winner.
