    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!
