our garden isn’t very big, it’s not even big, it’s actually very small. but we live in london so that’s pretty much the norm. however we are very lucky to live in apart of london where we are surrounded in green lushness pretty much everywhere we look. so when our garden proves to be too small for what we want or need to do, we look to our extended garden.
let me introduce you to our favourite extended garden. dulwich park. nestled in the pretty village, dulwich park is one of the last great victorian parks created by the metropolitan board of works. it was opened in 1890 and historically it was grazing land, known as five fields. (random information but we have permission to graze sheep outside our house if we so wished). it was a patchwork of fields, which were rented by local farmers. so fabulous is this favourite extended garden of ours that it has a grade II listing. oooooooo i hear you say, that’s fancy.
