Open Gardens Part II
I said in my last post that on my stroll around some Open Gardens on Sunday,
I had encountered a certain summer house
I simply could not get out of my head...
Now, I think you will understand why...!
I dare say I think this beautiful garden is the wonderful work of someone with
both a passion for gardens and the skills to make the dream come true.
A garden for all the senses, with "come and explore me" areas,
an old tree that once was part of an old orchard and which in its
advancing years is heard whispering "climb me, climb me" as you stroll past it
on your way to discretely stroke the lavender for a calming whiff...
Large pine cone "bunting" in the old tree - what a lovely idea!
Pots, pots, pots...
Those of you who have read my blog for a while know my weakness for wooden trays,
particularly weathered ones - yum, yum!
The more vibrant-coloured flower border against the wall, above which you can
enjoy the gorgeous view across the valley and the hill beyond.
This photo is taken standing with my back to the house. If you turn left just after the small tree on your left, you will be facing the lovely summer house. In the distance, you can see the green house, which rubs shoulders with a lovely vegetable garden.
A stunning garden and one which put more than one idea in my already inundated head...
Dear, oh dear.
can I build myself a summer house like this?!
(Well, the "how" I can work out, it is more the "where" and the "when", accompanied by the "how to convince the rest of the family about its necessity" that will take some pondering...)
Thank you, J and A, for sharing your wonderful garden with us!
Wishing you lovely summer days, whether in a summery house or without!
