Home Sweet Home

This is the last that I will post of Paula's home and gardens for a while....She is truly an inspiration to so many of us who know her and have been to her home and gardens.... They are a reflection of her personality....full of fun and surprises! Thank you Paula for so graciously welcoming all of us into your life...your home and gardens...
