Rough Musings Dumping Ground

There is real magic to a walled garden.

 

I am drawn to wild, loose, non-uniformed, naturalistic planting, where plants are intermingled

in abundance, and work well together. 

Tall grasses add movement, charm and softness to a garden.

I am often moved by something that is dying over something that is not.

Seeing plants that are allowed to go to seed heads, gardens left to go to seed heads

create their own charm.

I am beguiled by Walled Gardens, Pleached Espalier Trees and Pleached Trees, Topiary, Espalier too.

It is such a privilege photographing gardens and being permitted access at the quietest times.
