I knew at that moment, that I wanted an enchanted garden when I grew up.

I have always loved gardens. From as far back as I can remember, I would plan and think about garden designs. Growing up in Chicago, I remember going to my great-aunt's home for family parties. Your typical Chicago bungalow filled with lively Italians and FOOD! What struck me when I was a child was Aunt Tina's garden. With a cannoli in hand, I followed my cousins out the back door and was mesmerized by what I saw. Tall brick walls inclosed the small Chicago lot. Beautiful vines creeping up the old brick and large statues throughout the garden surrounded by flowers and greenery. A formal design with many of the same characteristics as the garden below.
