I'm beginning to think I should have dubbed this "Garden Week" here at Little Red House. With the exception of Tablescape Thursday, I think we are going to be seeing a lot of gardens. :)
This is the sunken garden at Kennelston Cottage, the same garden that I showed you yesterday. Let's go through the garden gate, and down toward the entry.
This is a wonderful garden, surrounded by a trellis and stone fence. The design is formal, but softened by moss edging the stone pathways.
As you can see, the trellis fence gives way to a stone wall and hedge on one side, creating a terrific sense of enclosure. I love the feeling of being surrounded by a garden. Is it a sense of security, a sort of going back to the womb, I wonder?
I love the allium peeking out from under the hostas, too. The stone bench looks like a wonderful place to sit and contemplate the garden. I could have spent hours here.
This hosta is about three feet across, I swear to God. Gorgeous! They obviously don't have to worry about deer here.
These succulents are growing in the top of one of the stone fence posts. An unusual and charming addition to a very beautiful garden.
More gardens on Friday. :)
