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
