The houses in our little village are a complete mix of styles and sizes. So are the gardens.
Our own garden is a mixture... some pretty areas, lots of vegetable and fruit growing areas, dog friendly areas, and dog-free child-friendly spaces. Definitely practical rather than decorative!
One garden which I pass regularly on my dog walking route is very beautiful and belongs to a friend of ours.
How cute is that little island!
It has a table and chairs and a lamp, I have no doubt that young Harry will be desperate to play 'pirates' there next time he visits.
She has a great eye for detail, which even extends to the grassy lane outside the garden which is only ever traversed by (dog)walkers and the occasional tractor.
A bench is provided for the weary to rest a while!
