today i’m going to take you to another garden that is not mine. a garden which covers 1.5 acres, with oak trees, fruit trees and a fully stocked stream. it’s just across the road from my office. i can see it from my window. this garden is split into 3 themed gardens, all with their very different and very individual characters and one has some interesting residents too.
there is a spanish garden, my favourite obvs, which is loosely based around the alhambra in granada, spain. with fountains and vine-covered walkways. on a side note, if you ever do find yourself in the south of spain, do go to the alhambra, it is truly magical.
there is the tudor garden, which is has carved stone archways and secret patio areas full of evergreen shrubs, lilies, roses, lavender and wisteria.
then finally there is the english woodland. where in the spring time, the garden is bursting of narcissus, crocus, muscari and anemones. but it is also this garden where you will find the local residents, bill, ben, splosh and pecks. see if you can spot them below. they are not exactly hiding!
did i mention this is on the 6th floor of an office block in the middle of high street kensington? I KNOW!
