Wonderful Garden Design Ideas

Glimpsed through an archway or an open doorway, a well-placed sculpture draws the eye to distant reaches, making a garden feel larger and more mysterious. Above: Photograph by Tony Hisgett via Wikimedia.

As long as you are building a wall, why not add a window? I love this idea! Above: Clematis overhanging a metal grille work window between the tower lawn and the rose garden. Photograph by Jonathan Buckley courtesy of Virago. For more, see Required Reading: Vita Sackville-West’s Sissinghurst.

These were my two favorite photos from the article with many more photos. Have a great weekend and enjoy the last full month of summer. Happy gardening. xo

Thank you for providing the link to view more photos. What an amazing garden, especially learning that she and her husband did much of the work themselves. You've probably seen them a thousand times but seeing curved bricks was a first for me.

Have a lovely weekend yourself, Rosemary. This will sound strange but I'm looking forward to attending a friend's memorial service on their cattle ranch...a second and third generation working cattle ranch. What a legacy she and her husband left behind.

I love everything about these photographs! The uneven lines of the bricks on the path; the focal point of the statue; and the window in the wall. Brilliant!

Again, thank you Rosemary!!!
