Small Gardens: Modern Country Garden Essentials

The small gardens that I love all seem to have one thing in common.
Modern Country Style.
A perfect mix of Modern formal structure, 
combined with soft Country informality.

Feast your eyes on these utterly beautiful examples.....

Note to self: plant hundreds, (well, a couple of packs from Wilkos), of white tulips.
They look so serene. And try and find 'Eden', a pale pink climbing rose, as feature in My Romatic Home's garden. A lot!

As soon as the daffodils are out I start to think about adding more colour to the garden by filling the pots - so many ideas here. I love the last photo.


You are adding to my already quite high anticipation of SPRING. It is right around the corner.

OOO, what beautiful eye candy here.

Beautiful images, Sarah, I love Spring gardens with tulips and daffodils.
Enjoy putting in your new garden, or rather, watching your gardeners put it in.
Hugs, Cindy

Gorgeous! I can't keep anything formal or simple so I will never have a garden like those ones, although a garden dripping with roses is definitely my style.

That second picture reminds me of The Secret Garden. I would love to have a secret garden at my house!

Unknown said...

Oh! All the lush green and pops of colour. Can't wait until we have that here.

I love them all. Your analysis of them mixing structure and informality is interesting--it works for me! said...

Loving each beautiful garden and wishing mine would look like one of them. They are so pretty. I'm going to work in my yard on Sunday. Buying some Lavender and maybe some roses. Take care sweetie!

Susan T said...

I am with you all the way on these stunning gardens, just perfect. Oh I wish.xx

Mimih said...

I absolutely love that first image. Modern country style is definitely the way to go in the garden for me. Even though I don't have one.

SImple and Serene Living said...

Although I love them all, it's a definite yes please to that first one.

michelle said...

All these lovely gardens makes me wish I had a green thumb! Even a light green thumb would be nice. :)

Have a wonderful day sweetie!!

The roses just knock me out! Love them! I haven't found roses that will grow in my yard (very shady) but I hold on to the dream of "someday."

Gorgeous Gardens.

They do indeed! I always wondered how to get that look and it now seems a fairly simple formula with the informal & formal to grow it all....!

Jill said...

I don't know what garden to choose they are all gorgeous!! Have a lovely week.
