A last venture .

We all need a last garden to remember this year by.

I needed a very special garden.

Auburn in leicestshire was the garden I chose.

It is the perfect small garden with a great house as well.

The perennial plants were very well chosen.

Perfect for this time of year.

Sweeping lawns with “borrowed landscapes” added peace and tranquility.

The ponds and their surrounding plants were good contrast.

Nearer to the house box hedges provided a more formal setting.

As I have often said , we all need inspiration.

We also need a variety of gardens to help us see what we could do.

I hope that in the next few weeks you are able to make a visit to a garden on your list.
