Views from the Garden

Before having children I really did love our life in London. I loved the bustle, the speed and the madness.

I loved our narrow Edwardian terraced house. I even enjoyed the small, low-maintenance concrete garden - despite the fact that you could hear every syllable of the neighbours' conversations over the garden fences!

I can't claim to have EVER been known for my love of nature or outdoor pursuits. So, I'm not sure whether it's my age or whether I had it in me all along - but why is it that suddenly a quiet walk through my garden in the morning or early evening is now one of my favourite things?

The peace...

The quiet...

The flowers!



  1. Hello
    Thank you for visiting my little blog. Lovely House and garden. I am adding you to my blog list and will be visiting you often.(smile)
    Have a wonderful day!

    Julie from Dowununder.

  2. I would love to take a quiet walk through your garden! It has all my favourite plants - roses, lavender, box - sigh!
