An English Country Garden

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us. ~Iris Murdoch


English country garden

I was pottering around watering some plants in my in laws beautiful garden when I caught this view and thought it looked like a perfect painting.

Oh I do love and English country garden in the Spring. It makes your heart happy just to look at it doesnt it. Ah Spring such i time of blossoming new starts and possibilities when the world begins to come back to life.

The scent of an English country garden is both delicate and sweet and it reminds me of perfume my elegant great aunts would wear. A scent to make you smile.  Spring promises summer and sunshine and the full bloom of flowers but in itself it is complete and perfect and It is a season I adore.

I urge you to get out in your garden and really sniff that spring air, it is good for your lungs and superb for your soul. just a moment or two can make all the difference to your day .

In the midst of a grey grim week I wish you a colourful and happy day x
