An English Country Garden

I was goofing around in our garden the other day and was reminded how beautiful it is. So I took some pictures to share with you all – it really is beautiful at this time of year! Click on for pictures of the garden I’m lucky enough to call home:

I hope you like it! And apologies for the fact I can’t name the plants….

    This where I have to point out that it’s not my garden….it’s my landlords. They are truly awesome horticulturists and the garden is their baby. But because I live in their little annex flat, I get to reap the benefits – beautiful views, fresh produce, and a dawn chorus each morning like you wouldn’t believe!Cxx

    That’s not a garden, that’s Paradise! Wow! When can I pop in for a visit?? ;)Also, has anyone ever told you that you look like a young Elizabeth Shue? Google her name and you’ll see what I mean. 🙂

    That is quite beautiful. There’s a state park about a mile from my house that is sort of similar, but you have to pay to get in. What a great place to live.

    That does look pretty stellar. I love being in green areas and the whole bit, however, I have nothing even close to a Green Thumb and tend to kill plants quickly. Your view would be great to sit, have a drink and zone out at the end of a day.

    I think gardens are amazing. I don’t have a green thumb, but I do appreciate plants.
