Gardening Girls

I like to think that visiting some of the great gardens of England has had an effect...

Here's Bryony on the Lutyens bench at Sissinghurst

and Kitty at Tintinhull.

Maybe insight from a National Trust gardener, proved inspirational. 

Our friend Maddie oversees the Japanese Tea Garden at Kingston Lacy.

But maybe they are just discovering the joy of gardening.


Either way it's nice to have them helping me in the garden.

Of all activities that are good for the soul, gardening is the most healing.

You picked two gardens that would surely motivate even the non greenest of fingers.
