Meet Judith and the Home of Botanic Bleu, Part 1

This past weekend  Judith Stringham who writes the blog Botanic Bleu held her annual French Country Christmas Event (semi-annual sale) inside her lovely garden house next to her home. Friends Laura of Decor to Adore and Cindy of County Road 407 invited me to go with them so off we went! Here is a little photo montage of Judith's beautiful French country styled home and gardens on the country property she and her husband have here in Texas....

Judith's French blue garden greenhouse ~ we loved the doors!
How about you? :)
Arriving at Judith's home for the first time, Cindy and I were enchanted with how lovely her home and property are!

Sitting on an acre or more the home reminds me of the last family home I lived in with my parents in Northern California.

The Stringham home is a beautiful wooden house surrounded by oak and other trees with meandering brick pathways laid by Judith and her husband over the 30+ years they have lived here.

Judith inside her she shed where so many French style treats were for sale.

Judith began writing her aptly named blog Botanic Bleu in 2012.  Her home and garden are showcased beautifully every time she writes, as this Christmas day post shows from December 2012...

During this Christmas season though the day was warm and dry.
Le lapin playfully flits around the garden!

Teuteurs Judith planted in the garden bed add structure and support to plants each year. Arc du bois crabapple orbs sit like pale green Christmas ornaments in a French planter. Rosemary bushes line the bed's curve.

A view of the rear of the Stringham home with its double decker
French doors and palladian window. Isn't this a glorious day?!

Sunshine beams in east facing windows flooding the living and dining rooms with wonderful light. French blue is Judith's signature color and it shines here in her lovely home.

Love this pantry!!!

Topiaries bask in the late fall sunshine. Creamware plates, bowls and pottery enhance this metal shelving unit.

This is a short video I took at Judith's home. 

Coming off the covered deck, Kitty kept us company as we peeked in the open doorway leading into the living and dining rooms. 

Judith has a green thumb and her rooted ivy cuttings show
her gardening capabilities.

Tomorrow I'll share more as this post has already run long. We will look inside her greenhouse and check out what's for sale during Judith's winter event.
