Secret Garden


Isn't this Secret Garden beautiful?

Take a look at all the delicious traditional Country elements:

the soft informal planting
the beautiful curve in the arch of that old brick wall
the aged stone statue and plinth
the cobbled path

The juxtaposition (what a fab word) of these elements against the formal topiary structure underpinning it all is 
my idea of Modern Country Gardening bliss!

A hedge is a simple form of topiary used to create boundaries, walls or screens.

Not at all family-friendly (where would the footballs go?! I'm lucky enough to have five littlies, so this is always utmost in my mind!) but very gorgeous nevertheless!

Now then, who fancies seeing a bit more of how a certain Kate Middleton is getting on looking stylish-whilst-pregnant? 
Be back here sharpish on Wednesday. ;-)

I love the children's story, The Secret Garden, and this garden is beautiful, too.

Love to see more of the lovely Kate.

Fondly,
Glenda

Beautiful gardens aren't usually kid friendly...kind of the way it goes, right? Someday I'll have a gorgeous garden but I'll be sad because my kids will be gone, sigh. Yes, would love to see Miss Kate...so excited for the royal baby. xo
