My Garden

I have a small back yard garden. I wanted a courtyard style garden. I lost my wife three years ago so I wanted the Garden to reflect us, I incorporated a Venus D'Milo statue as we got 




engaged there, David Austin roses which she loved, whilst making the garden feel relaxed, but incorporating Asian influences. An east meets west relaxation garden. Here are a few pictures. Always looking at changing details though.

    That looks a lovely, peaceful place to remember your wife Paul. Gardens, like music, are wonderful for bringing back all the good memories.

    What a wonderful thought.  I am sure she would be so proud of you for your great efforts!  I wonder if she enjoys sitting in your garden too.
    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.

    I agree a garden can touch your soul. It really is a relaxing place. Feeling secluded which is good considering the proximity to the car park. I also am lucky that I get loads of birds in the garden. I don't deed them but put out water and have added insect hotels too

    It's a small world I think. I am very lucky that I live in such a lovely home and have fantastic neighbours
