My, oh my, that view!

I love the all white decor – it’s clean, it’s modern. But I would probably add splashes of color if this were my place. Maybe a bright tablecloth or colorful placemats. A plant or two. Still, it’s stunning.

I got the image from Pinterest. It was sourced from There are more photos of this villa in Greece (they do have a plant or two) on their site so follow that link. Thank you to whoever created such a beautiful space – I love your look!

I’ll be back tomorrow, hope to see you here.

What do you think? Is this lovely or nerve-racking or both?


It’s hard to say without seeing the wider view – the way the photo was shot makes me nervous, which I’m guessing was by design.

But I love the idea of dining with that view. It’s very Appalachian, isn’t it?

I got this image from Pinterest. It was sourced as coming from But I’m not sure which photographer to credit. So I’ll just throw a general “thanks for sharing your interesting photo” out there to the Internetland.


I’m not sure how comfy those seats would be, but I still like this space a lot. It looks like a welcome respite from the heat. It’s kinda romantic, too, with old world charm.

I found the photo on Pinterest. It was apparently from notmybeautifulhome.tumbler. I’m not sure where this space is, or who took the photo. So thank you to whoever’s space this is – it’s nice to see it!

I’ll be back tomorrow, hope to see you here.

Aaaahhhhh, this is gorgeous!


I got the photo from Pinterest. Here is a link to the article written about the back yard in the July 2005 issue of Southern Living Magazine. According to the article, the landscape architect was Harold Leidner of Dallas and Pool Environments in Plano, Texas. Read the piece, particularly if you’re interested in how he decided which plants to use.

Nice work, Harold! I’m a big fan.

Aaaaahhhhh, this takes me away:


It’s not the photo itself or the table decor that draws me. It’s the emotions I feel looking at it. I can imagine it so clearly…family and good friends, cheeses, breads and fruit, a gorgeous view.

There’s something about sharing a meal outdoors that makes me feel like we’ve got it pretty good in this lifetime. Tugs at my heartstrings a little bit.

(I found the photo on Pinterest, it is credited to, but I don’t know where they got it from, who took the photo, or where the location is.)

I think this outdoor living room is pretty!


And I can actually give credit where credit is due. I got the image from Pinterest, the photo was featured in this article, the designer was Los Angeles designer Brian Patrick Flynn. Nicely done, Brian – I like your style! Thanks for sharing!


This makes me wish I lived in the Midwest again, and not the Southwest. I love how the plants look established (and not planted moments before the photo shoot – although there’s nothing wrong with that). I love the red. Love the cozy lighting. Love the setting. Love the barn in the background.

The only thing I don’t love is not knowing who to give credit to for the design or the photo. I got the image off Pinterest but have no idea how it got there.

To the owners of this property, whoever and wherever you are, well done! Now, will you invite me over for dinner, please?



As usual, I have no idea who to credit for the design or the photo. The image is from Pinterest (there is a link associated with the photo, but the site is no longer active).

To whoever created this lovely space – well done! Can you come to my house next please?

If this is a private home, I’d really like to become friends with the owners so I can be invited over to enjoy it:


They might have a tough time getting rid of me, though.

Just a quick reminder that you have time to answer some houseplant interview questions if you wish. I’ll post your answers tomorrow. Here’s a link to the questions: Click here!

Alright, alright, we’ll go back to the luxurious outdoor spaces.


They are incredible, after all.

(Since the simple design featured on Tuesday got no love!)

I found this image on Pinterest, credit appears to go to Australian landscape design company called Secret Gardens. Here’s a link to their article highlighting their favorite “hideaway” patios. Well done! I look forward to showcasing more of your beautiful work in the future!


You still have time to guess last week’s puzzler, in which I asked if this plant was real or fake:

Good To Grow, Liza's photos, real or fake plant puzzler

You can leave your best guess in the comment section or on my facebook wall. The deadline is tonight at midnight MST (that’s 2am EST).

I’ll reveal the answer and the winner(s) after an all-new Ask the Experts Panel tomorrow afternoon. I hope you check it out because in honor of the solstice, I asked the Experts to share their vision of what a proper celebration should be. It promises to be great fun. Hope to see you back here.

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in Arizona, after many years of living in and owning a plant care business in New Mexico.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
