Cottage Garden at Wisley

Dear readers,
today I´d like to show you the pictures I took of the cottage garden at Wisley in June this year. The cottage garden was laid out by Penelope Hobhouse, who is a famous garden designer and garden writer. I especially loved the entrance to the cottage garden -  huge rose arches with white rambler roses and clematis. I also loved the large containers, standing next to the rose arches, which fit the colour scheme very beautifully. The garden is planted with roses, catmint, lavender, poppies and many other bee friendly plants. Whereas the rose arches, the cobblestone way and the pond provide structure and formality, the planting itself seems rather informal and wild. I like such gardens in which the plants are allowed to grow freely, brushing you when strolling through the garden.
I hope you like this garden!
Best wishes,

Dear readers,
almost 6 months have past since my garden vacation in England and still I haven´t even shown you half of the pictures I took there. Today I would like to show you some pictures I took during a visit at Wakehurst. It belongs to the National Trust and is managed by the Royal Botanic Gardens. There are several gardens to be explored at Wakehurst, my absolute favourite being the walled garden.
Hope you enjoy!

I really liked this planter.
