Gardens are classic to London, as aromatic spices are to Hyderabad, India. From what I heard from first hand accounts on backyard gardens from Pamela in DC, who had worked around people like C S Lewis, and from Anders whose was born where Shakespeare grew up – Stratford-upon-Avon. His mom has a beautiful garden. They take pride and are passionate about cultivating, and nourishing flowers, herbs, and tomatoes but not chilies. Ha, we Indian origin Americans love our chilies!
The beautiful snap is from Olivia Howitt that I came across here at the BBC website.
to quote “The garden shown here was planted in memory of the blitzed church. Clematis and climbing roses weave up 10 wooden towers which represent the pillars that held the former roof. Box-edged beds of roses indicate where the pews once stood, while an avenue of trees marks the former nave. “And the plants are the parishioners,” Blair said. (Credit: Olivia Howitt)”
