    Check this out. This is the Nobano No Sato botanical garden in Japan lit up for Christmas.

    Yes, they are wisterias and they're located at the Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Japan. I recognized the picture you posted because I have the same ones on my Pinterest board.

    I love all the features everyone has posted so far. You all have great taste!

    If I could have an ideal garden feature it would be a fenced in, raised bed vegetable/flower garden in the sunniest area of my yard. I would have squirrel feeders elsewhere to distract those critters. I would have an arbor entryway with vining roses on the arbor and a nice wooden gate.

    I'm an artist, so I love this palette of flowers. I like how the rake is a giant "paintbrush". So freaking cool.

    This palette is adorable, it's very creative:)

    I'd love to have a gazebo like this, it would be perfect to sit there in a lace dress and eat delicious breakfast:) :

    I'm not sure I would want plant mannequins in my garden, but maybe a fashion designer would like them.

    I'm starting to think that I have to have a tree house in my dream garden! I was looking at pictures of tree houses for the last 15 minutes and I can say without any doubt that I love them all.
    But I'd also like to have... a swing:D :

    I like that swing, it's kind of romantic. I'm not into scarecrows, but this is a unique scarecrow. It's not every day that you see a scarecrow dressed in lace and ruffles.

    I love lace but this is a little too much:p
    I'd prefer to have a lovely birdhouse in my garden instead of a scarecrow:

    This outdoor hammock is over water. How would someone climb into this and what happens if they fall asleep and roll into the water?
    I would imagine that if you can actually get into this hammock, the view must be lovely.

    ACSAPA, thank you for sharing this picture, I love the hammock! It would be so lovely to lie there...sleeping could be dangerous though:p . But I'd lie there with a good book and with something delicious to eat, it would be heavenly:D . It looks so beautiful!

    My dream garden feature would be a little stream that flows through the middle and has a little walk through bridge. I would have to have a very large yard and garden to pull that one off.

    Are you talking about something like this?:):

    I dream of having a small bridge in my garden too. I would spend a lot of time just looking at it and admiring it!:) I've always had a soft spot for bridges, rivers and brooks. There is something very romantic about them.

    Wow those pictures are amazing! I have almost an acre of property and I would really love to landscape the entire perimeter of my backyard. In the shady areas close to my fence the grass does not grow as well so I would love a big rock border to create a bed and then plant lots of shade loving perennials. I think my yard would look more "finished" and beautiful.

    I'd love to have an acre or more of land to create my own private botanical garden.

    just looking back at this. depending on how the yard is made, maybe you could do it on a smaller scale.

    like for me, living in kinda track housing, there's space on either side of my house (and also the detatched garage behind it) to walk back into the back yard. usually one side is the driveway coming up the side of the house, and the other side is grass. on the grass side maybe a similar tunnel like set up could be done. but like i said, it would depend on how your house sits on your property.
