I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

a touch of whimsy in Woodford

the gardens in Woodford are open this weekend - so this morning dear Joe & I went to have a look at my favourite.

This garden is the most delightfully silly, pretty garden that I have ever come across - owned by a couple who obviously have a great sense of whimsy. The lady is in her mid 30's and is married to a man who in her own words ' lets me have pink' - she is also very artsy.

As soon as you walk down the stairs into their front yard, you are enveloped in pink - you can just feel it. The house is painted in a faded pale pink with dark pink trims * with some orchid here & there. It really is delightful.... down the side of the art studio you are teased with little plants just rambling here and there. A hammock swinging in a little nook, so tempting. The vegetable garden, a delight and right near that is the most sweet little old fashioned clothes line with a pink peg bag hanging, full of pink pegs!!!! She had placed roses here and there for a touch of whimsy... so romantic.
Although this couple don't have children, they have a cubby house - all dripping with pink tuille. Every little girls dream..and then down the path Mr & Mrs Scarecrow are watching the garden - dressed to kill of course.... it was such a delight to see and really touched my nonsense self...

I took quite a few photos which I have uploaded to FLIKR - take a walk through the garden with me & enjoy

Morning ms*robyn, I enjoyed your slide show of the garden. The brick paths are so nice. You can tell, the lady is a worker...everything was well planned and a treat to see. I took particular notice of the lovely head on her lady scarecrow...its amazingly pretty! How'd she do that?
