Spring Fever: Colorful Home Garden in Diablo, Calif.

The grounds are divided among dahlia and rose gardens, a koi pond and a saltwater pool.

Hello, Spring! What better way to celebrate the first day of the season than with a beautiful home surrounded by picturesque gardens. Equal parts cool and colorful, this garden estate says goodbye to the winter blues once and for all.

Nestled in the hills of California, this European country house was inspired by traditional English gardens. The grounds are divided among dahlia and rose gardens, a koi pond and a saltwater pool.

The property has a host of outbuildings intended for those who delight in a gardening lifestyle: a greenhouse to start vegetable seeds in the winter, a potting bench for flower arranging and a woodshed to stock the fire pit. We’re big fans of that Dutch door leading to the potting bench!

A floral motif is even carried throughout the interior of the house, from tapestries and wallpaper to murals.
