Creating a Magical Backyard Retreat

A Magical Backyard in Marion

We often see amazing backyard projects in magazines, on shows like HGTV or on Pinterest and think how neat it would be to transform our own yard.  Here in Marion, the owner has created a perfect destination spot for summer nights.
I hope you enjoy a little tour and are inspired to make the most of your yard.

My dear friend Julie has created a lovely backyard sanctuary.  It's a place where you 
want to while away entire evenings, enveloped by the patio lights and candle light.  Ever the welcoming hostess, Julie opens a bottle of wine, quickly conjures snacks and settles guests into this magical get-away.  It's relaxing, soothing and a beautiful escape.

Meet Lily, Julie's beloved Pug and mistress of the house.

Unique, artful touches are everywhere.


While the night-time atmosphere is beautiful, Julie's yard is full of discovery and whimsy.  Have a look at what you'll find.

A rustic garden gate ushers you into the backyard. 

Thank you for visiting, and thanks for the tour, Julie!
