Is this... real life? The idea of just finding a castle wing for sale in the morning paper is blowing the mind of this small-town American girl. What an adventure!

I...... wow. I'm just speechless. A breathtaking yet comfy castle in Scotland. (Not to mention the handsome hubby with style galore.) Surely this is every woman's dream. Sure is mine!

No matter what will ultimately be your backsplash, remember that there are artisans out there that can match switch/outlet covers so they blend in. One such example is

OK - so we ended up with 2 rows of white (which are 4 x 16 tiles) then a 2 inch row of black subway tile (you can't see it but we have a row of black in the shower so this sort of ties it in). A full tile looked too much. Thanks for your suggestions.

A couple of thoughts here. First off, don't most of you turn off your lights when you go to sleep? If so, why is the wall color such a big deal? Second, I am thinking that keeping the master bedroom (and the whole house for that matter) affordable might be the best sleep-inducing strategy for most of us. Less debt is definitely more relaxing!

Gorgeous house. I suggest that pruning the foundation plants to heights about one foot below the window would remove the "overgrown" look. Check with local nursery on the right time to prune.

My angelica gigas has just started blooming - looks beautiful and if the weather holds, it will probably have several blooms. I love the big leaves.

In North Texas where heat is king, we plant yuccas as well in both large and small landscapes for great foliage, especially the bright yellow and green striped variety. They fit everywhere!

I would be thrilled to have flowers til November. I live in zone 3 - our first frost is sometime in Sept. Last year, winter came early and seemingly lasted forever. I love reading articles like this - I can garden vicariously!

Cheryl, I've thought about a gazebo but there's honestly nowhere in our garden where we could add on, except a permanent one on the side patio. And I don't think that's ideal either. Right now though, we have had COLD weather blow in and it looks like summer's over (altho' next week is supposed to warm up a bit). Maybe I need a city that actually has summer more than a few brief weeks.....

Maybe. Even an awning overhang could help by giving you a little shade and shelter from the sun. It's not going to protect you from a storm but it could provide some relief :-/ San Diego is really nice!
