We have a nice, little backyard at our house. On Tuesday we decided to try something different. It’s a little ambitious but…
We put in a small, and very simple, English garden.
What is an English garden?
This photo was sent to me by a friend who grew up in England, (see comment below: Mr. Masa) so here is a REAL English garden from his parents’ house.
I was very impressed. I learned they are big, beautiful gardens with many different kinds of plants including: flowers, herbs and bushes. There is a mix of beauty and usefulness because people often grow vegetables and herbs in these gardens. If you have a big yard you can have a lawn with an area to play lawn games like croquet (and lawn tennis if it’s very big yard!) or maybe have tea. Sounds very English to me and actually very cool.
We are trying a small mix of flowers, herbs and one perennial tree.
It looks pretty nice now. We hope it will stay beautiful.
Thanks for reading!
