Dear Deer

    Have a nice day.

Before & After: Spring to Summer on a Mountian Top

Hold on to your hats, I am a little obsessed with the beautiful portfolio of Alex Smith in Atlanta. He has mountain gardens broken out in a separate section on his site and they are truly breathtaking (as is the rest of his portfolio)…and it is especially fun to see the steps to put it…
