Happy Fairy Day!

It’s Fairy Day, so I thought I’d share our¬†fairy garden, with a few additions since last year (wine and cheese!).

I’m not sure what’s going on with the suspicious-looking gnome in the bushes, though…

Throwback Thursday: Wandering in Jane’s garden

Jane Austen’s House Museum posted this picture of Jane’s garden yesterday. I don’t think it’s too much to aim at making my backyard look similar. I’m not really hooked on the hedges, but those deep flower borders make me sigh.



The photo reminds me that when I visited England in 1996, this garden was one of the places that made me wish I had more time to just sit and soak it all in.  Here are few pictures of the garden I took then:

You can find more pictures of the house in my Flickr account.
