Photo by Claudia Watts

Amelia Island homeowner Claudia Watts submitted this photo of her husband, George W. Watts, Jr. and Seve, their black standard schnauzer dog, at home on Amelia Island .  With some design assistance from James Loper, George created an oasis, where they thoroughly enjoy time in the back yard.  In addition to the privacy created by the lush ever greens, the fragrance from the ligustrum, orange, lemon & grapefruit trees is intoxicating.  Hummingbirds love the Carolina jasmine, which spills off the arbor.  Butterflies enjoy the butterfly bushes and an array of birds find the re-circulating fountain & the two bird baths a nice respite from the heat.  Add the Adirondack chairs, a gentle sea breeze, and the Watts have a perfect perch to take it all in with their favorite libations.
