Today, we are visiting some gardens that I came upon by chance when visiting St Ives! It was a Secret Garden Tour, so wasn’t I the lucky one! Many of the gardens were behind garden doors like this! Wouldn’t you want to know what was behind that door? This photo was taken from inside the garden looking out! See how narrow the walkway was? Ah hah! The narrow, hidden streets of St Ives!
Many of the gardens were along a stretch of Victorian homes high on a bluff……..
They had dainty little terraces…..crammed with plants in pots and planters………
and very nice looking sea fences, which had curly springs on them (see Featured Photo) and below, rusty delights to be discovered…….
Here, I was looking for the magic eight ball!
Who wouldn’t want to sit here and take it all in! Tea anyone?
I am hoping that by showing the pocket gardens, that it will encourage you to open your garden to visitors…… even for just one afternoon. I am sure your neighbors and friends would enjoy it!
The instructions for SOS are easy. The photos can be flowers, vegetables, a garden design, whatever, as long as it’s garden related and posted on Saturday! So, its six photos. Of Gardens. On Saturday. Easy Peasy. To see all the SOS’s look at SIX ON SATURDAY, hosted by the Propagator, to check out all of them each Saturday! See you next week!
