Magic Effects In A Well Lit Garden

slider 3

On a recent visit to friends in a tiny village right out in the sticks, I was greatly impressed with a gardens I was lucky enough to be invited to look around.  They were getting ready for the forthcoming open day for the garden charity and as it was their first year, I suspect they were anxiously wanting to hear approving noises and comfortable words of praise.  They got it all from me – I found their garden so totally absorbing and beautiful that I was nearly speechless.

Not only did they have lots of little ‘rooms’ within the half acre plot, each one with a different theme, but to reflect the wooded land up the end of the farm track, they separated their garden spaces with trees and tall shrubs.  Normally this would have made it seem dark, but in their design were lenty of exterior lights – different sets, up uplighters, downlighters, strings within shrubs.  It was pure magic!
