  1. The latter garden is not too bad but it is very English. Yes, I know, different place, but it is very English. Lots of colour and even Agapanthus which flourishes here in high heat with little water.

    1. I wouldn't necessarily say 'very English' more like a traditional cottage garden ... in England, Scotland or Wales ;-)

  2. I would love to just pull up a chair and sit in the sun/or shade and see and smell that place for just a while. I think when you yourselves, stop and just take a break from whatever you are doing, sometimes, you still marvel at the place where you call home :)
    A greenhouse is so wonderful to have .. someone I knew once upon a time had one and there were fans at the top, on each end, blowing all day. I think you will have flowers much longer since they will be sheltered, even into times of frost, right ?

  3. They are gorgeous - that crocosmia is stunning. I really must try harder on my flower beds!

  7. It just occurred to me that the yards in Asheville, North Carolina are very much like English gardens. My son-in-law calls them "yardens." Love the flower bicycle!
    All very lovely.

      This fortress built by Nature for herself

  9. My vote goes to photo No 6 (the one with the tree in a circular bed in the middle of the lawn).

    Best wishes.

  12. I would love to walk with the Judge. Beautiful GREEN lush gardens with so many flowers. Not at all like a water saving desert gardens we have in Tucson.
    I love the flower bike.

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

  13. Beautiful spaces. What a good incentive to keep up the gardens when one might be inclined to let things go because it's too hot (or is that only me?)

  14. The wilder the better.
    . Bodnant Gardens is the pride of N Wales gardenwise. I bet you've been there and walked through the arch of golden rain.

  18. All breathtaking. Wow. And I especially love cottage gardens. I had lots of friends in the States who tried to reproduce the look -- some very successfully. But Trelawnyd is in a class all its own!

  19. Does Mr Butler have a first name? I am thinking Lancelot... like Capability Brown... or maybe Zayn like that lad who left One Direction.

  21. How very, very beautiful. And much lusher than many gardens here.

  22. So much style. I assume the Ukranian Village isn't entered? ;)

  23. I tried to do a cottage garden here, but clay soil and unrelenting summer heat put an end to that. Now I have a few succulents and bulbs in place and I'm leaving it alone for a year to see what survives before I plant more.

  24. You need GQT to come over.

  25. Gardens are like people in that they are individuals and reflect character, temperament and personality. I always find it difficult to judge gardens as I do appreciate the work and thought brought into each.
    These are beautiful ones!
