Sitting on a rustic – read rickety – bench as the breeze catches the tall willowy grasses. Reminds me of being a child and imagining I could ‘see’ the wind as it rippled through tall grasses wave after wave bending and flowing.
An ex-Chelsea small garden languishing at Capel Manor showing off it’s Dry Garden credentials. One wonders if the Plantain was quite this rife at Chelsea?
One of my favourite gardens of the day. Huge chunks of stone filled with single plants. Not usually being a fan of mono-type planting but this one works well using 6 or 7 genus in blocks, foliage being the primer.
Late summer planted borders are usually seen in great block planting schemes. This delightful floppy version lines what was probably a wide grass path at one stage but it’s flop give the passerby a view of the flower detail and the insect life making the most of the bounty on offer
Hidden behind a climber clothed screen this charming shady planting. Pots piled on pots, staged for the bend sitters to relax in. So taken with this idea I have already recommended something similar to a client.
Putting my woefully under-tended allotment to shame I long for this kind of pottager plot, row upon row of delicious looks produce and not many weeds….
Stately and inviting on a hot summer afternoon, benches dotted along it for wanders to sit and take in the dappled shade. Spring time must be glorious.
