WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- As we continue our preview of the Azalea Garden Tour, we look at a garden that's become an outdoor home for its owners.
The first thing you'll notice is the lush green grass that brightens up the front yard. This is offset with plenty of bright bulbs and annuals. The backyard features plenty of usable space, with many gardens and sitting areas that make for the ultimate in outdoor living.
"It's like a house," owner Kathy Rose said. "You have a den over by the fireplace, a living room on the back patio and a parlor here. It's been fun."
Several fountains provide a soothing background noise for lounging in the outdoor chairs and couches.
As far as spring color is concerned, there's plenty here, from roses to azaleas to japanese maples. Everything is coming into bloom just in time for the tour
