What beautiful pictures!

I saw your blog title on Life In Sunny Ridge & as Brit, I was drawn.

Look forward to reading more & seeing more of these wonderful photos!

It reminds me of a scene in a film that Darcy would star in - Wonderful!

Well Jo, I would love to visit. I am thinking of putting in a knot garden...thinking mind you. And, stay tuned. I have a recipe and instructions for making troughs like the one shown. I think you would like some in your garden.

Just popped over from another blog...I'm an American who has just repatriated to the US after 6 years in the UK. We're in Northern NJ now but my husband is a Tennessee boy (Maryville, just outside of Knoxville). I love the pics of the English gardens..sigh...we're all just a little bit homesick for England.

Pat said...

Yes let's have a cuppa and I'll take milk please.

Tessa said...

Heavenly! Thank you for the invitation...what a pleasure to be here.

So pleased to 'meet' you - I came via Eternally Distracted's blog...and I'm so pleased I did. Can't wait to explore some more....

Oooooo....I will be RIGHT there.
Gosh,all of these shots look so ideal, they could be paintings. Loved each spot. I would never come indoors if I had your gardens!

Ohhh, thank you sooooo much for the mini vacation...I loved eating my mater samich and tinkering in the garden shed ( a little envious though). The beach was a breath of fresh air without the drive and the walks through the garden gates and down the path have relaxed me just a bit ....now to crawl back to the books and work..

Denise said...
