Post #9035562

My very favorite garden designer. As a teenager I read her books, along with all I could find of Gertrude Jekyll's, and dreamed of the gardens I would have some day.

Instead what I have is more like "muddled up in a tangle of bindweed, nettles and ground elder." --the way she found Sissinghurst when she finally was able to return there. Well, I still have the dreams!

Thanks for bring back an old friend.
