Each day I post a photo of something that is garden related...it is an eclectic assortment indeed: Flowers, chairs,people, gardens, artwork, planters....
I post whatever I think might appeal to other kindred spirits out there. You can click here to go to the site: Serenity in the Garden on Facebook.
I have decided to make a post of whatever I post on FB on a weekly basis here in my blog...that way it will be available to all the non-Facebook users out there.
I will number the posts ( this is number 1) and will go back in the archive on some posts because I have alot to catch up on.
I hope you enjoy these photos and ideas. If you do, please let me know - Thanks!
I once spent several week in Valldal (picking strawberries for room and board) and can say that western Norway area is incredible. bucket list item.
Begun in 1715, by 1727 they were described as ‘the noblest of any in Europe’. The grounds represent the work of some of... the best-known British landscape gardeners including Charles Bridgeman, Capability Brown, William Kent and Sir John Vanbrugh. This amphitheatre was designed by Charles Bridgeman.
In 1949 the gardens were donated to The National Trust for stewardship and protection. By the 1970s, the gardens were overgrown and in a poor state. The Slater Foundation gave money for their restoration in 1975. Thank You Slater!
