Staying on the gardens theme, I visited a friend's garden yesterday and it is quite frankly the loveliest garden I have ever seen; I would love my own garden to be like her's. This is quite impossible as hers is very long and narrow and mine is wide and short. Plus it does help that she is a professional gardener and ceramicist so has both an artist's and a gardener's eye for what looks good.
This gate draws you in and the garden has so many little areas it is as if you are discovering a secret garden all for yourself for the very first time!
The plants in this lady's garden are amazing but it was the quirky vintagey items which caught my eye and had to be photographed. Perhaps some of the gardenalia on my website will now be sold to me!
