I love the stepping stones set into the grass, I am planning something similar as a path to a bench.
More stepping stones and the lovely informality of lupins and hollyhocks.
A relaxing bench at the bottom of the garden (yet more stepping stones).
This beautiful climbing rose is called Piere de Ronsard or Eden Rose.
OK, the house is probably more inspiring than the garden, but the general mood the whole makes is the character I would love.
Some nice higgledy-piggledy planting.
A wonderful selection of flowers.
As you can see, there is a real theme in the type of gardens I love, the rambling nature of them, the way plants look as though they have grown wildly where they wanted to (which of course is not true as these have taken very careful planning). No corners, lots of curves. It is always a great idea to get inspiration from photos and I look at them carefully when I am planning something new in the garden. It's worth trying anything, because everything in a garden can be fairly easily reversed if it goes wrong.
