It's Dream Home Time

Every year HGTV gives away a "Dream Home" worth millions that the winner usually opts to sell for the cash. This year, the home is in Sonoma, CA. The house looks lovely, as do the interiors, but I have to admit, I was less than impressed with it's gardens. Tons of grass out front, some boring shrubs around the foundation, a teeny, tiny area tucked between the house and the garage for gardening, and more grass in the back. The patio and pergola look nice, but sort of plunked in the back. Don't get me started on the Arborvitae hedge in the back. The one sort of cool thing was a grape arbor (which makes sense when the house is smack in the middle of wine country).

Don't get me wrong, I'm entering the sweepstakes daily. And telling everyone I meet to do the same, but it does sort of bother me that the "G" in HGTV is a bit neglected.
