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!
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. ;-)
