Lately I've been pondering paint choices for my house and I was doing a Google search for "purple house" when I stumbled upon the wonderful website of a very talented lady, Lucinda Hutson. She writes books about cooking with herbs and specializes in organic gardening and garden design.
Her house and gardens are absolutely magical! I sent a link to her website to a bunch of my friends and we all agreed that we want to live in her house! Her fearless and beautiful use of color is a joy to look at.
She has many gardens, including an area called the Mermaid Grotto.
