My favorite thing from the Garden Tours was this wall of succulents, just fabulous.

Here and there, some interesting architecture. As you might imagine, this home was very light and airy inside.

this home was cool with two levels of stairs and the walkway adjoining rooms was clear glass.

lap pools make sense for the homes in the Venice area since they are so small, which is what is interesting about them. The way that people solve the problem for lack of space. One bungalow was so tiny (many apartments are bigger) at 400 square feet, really only one person could live there. This lap pool is shaded by some very expensive looking palm trees, beautiful.
