French Country Garden With Lavender

A luxurious sweep of lavender flanks this very French hillside garden designed by Shellene Mueller. Stone boulders echo the rose- and vine-draped pillars above. French gardens "celebrate the senses," Shellene says. "You're visually stimulated, you're smelling lavender and thyme, there's interesting texture — all the senses are stimulated."
