Oh dear, I couldn’t resist sharing this gorgeous photo of a beautifully rambling, colour-filled flower garden. It has definitely confirmed that I will need to one day plant foxgloves and poppies in my garden…

I’m sure that by now you’re aware of my absolute weakness for vine-y, rambling, beautiful gardens. So it should come as no surprise that as soon as I saw the gardens of this property (captured by Christopher Baker) I may have been grinning from ear to ear. Of course I love the ivy (it’s a weakness of mine – one of the things that first attracted me to the university college I stayed at was the fact that the buildings were covered in vines), but I also admire the restrained colour palate of the gardens as well as the fresh, abundant greenery that is so calming.

Isn’t this photo just divine? Would love to lounge around outside with a book under the mosquito net …

So how was your weekend? Mine was filled with Christmas baking, wrapping presents, catching up with friends and apricot jam making. Oh, and reading Oliver Twist (finally)!

This delightful house and its gardens instantly made me think of fairytales … it’s just sublime.

Look what I spied on my walk to work this week – a little reminder that spring is just around the corner!

Isn’t this beautiful image (via the lovely Sasha) just breathtaking? To me it looks almost like a fairytale – one day I would love to have an area like this in my backyard …

Hello! How was your weekend? Mine was filled with study – one exam down, one take home exam to do today (which is like a 5,000 word assignment), and two more to go! Can’t wait until they’re all finished!

Have been thinking recently (daydreaming, no doubt, instead of working!) how lovely it would be to have a beautiful green house one day to grow flowers in winter and germinate heirloom vegetable seeds.

beautiful garden

Image via Fleur, via {this is glamorous}, however I can’t find the original source – if you happen to know please do share.

This photo makes me long for the time when I can have roses tumbing over a trellis in my own garden. Just beautiful …

Was browsing favourite blogs recently and came across this gorgeous photo that immediately made me want to have abundantly overflowing flowers in windowboxes …
