Couldn't have said it better. So I won't even try. This blog is going to do so brilliantly...simple and to the heart.
Another great post Charlotte, I really like your new blog. :)
The garden gives us many gifts, and "restoration of the senses" is certainly a big one. I wrote a post on the gifts the garden gives us, if you might like to read it sometime. :) http://nancybond.wordpress.com/2009/04/02/the-gift-of-your-garden/
It was only last year that I heard of Lytes Cary Manor. It's in the next county to Dorset but, none the less, not very easy by public transport!I've seen photos - but not of this particular part. It looks very restful.Lucy
Your blog is a little shimmer of light in my day,Cindee
