No apologies for having a garden-themed week this week... Nab Wood's 'Open Gardens' were so beautiful and deserve a wider audience. This is another of the terraces in the garden I featured yesterday. The owner showed me some photographs of how the garden looked when they bought the house - and it was literally bare earth and rubbish. To have turned it into this little oasis in (I think he said) 11 years is nothing short of a miracle.
One of the interesting games you can play when looking round the open gardens is to spot the half-hidden, quirky little treasures that people have placed. Here, the bird bath takes centre-stage and I'll bet the birds love to splash in it.... but can you see the stone face in the corner of the border, a bit like one of the Easter Island statues?
