Photo a day....19th June.

"Moving On".

This garden was very pretty. The guidebook said
"moving On" depicts a complete rear garden, seen from a couple's Victorian terraced cottage. They have downsized from an agricultural background. With its original boundary wall restored, this is a traditional, easily maintained garden that is both productive and pretty.

Soft pastel planting, punctuated by a careful selection of small trees, shrubs and climbers, creates the perfect setting for the couple's memorabilia. The original privy is used as a utility area, and has been lovingly restored with reclaimed timber and enhanced with a drought tolerant living sempervivum roof.

The Moving On garden provides a relaxing environment that the couple can enjoy together, whether tending to the needs of their plants or sitting with a glass of wine on a warm summer evening. This reflects the ethos of our sponsor, Warner Breaks."

This is a really pretty, potter about type of garden. I like the sempervivum roof.

What a lovely garden, the colours are my favourites. Really enjoyed your pics of Chelsea, we went ourselves but a series of events meant we missed some and it is good to catch up with your comments. I did see the Old Gate right at the last but it was already been taken to pieces :-) Great posts!
