Back home after a wonderful day at Hampton Court and keen to share one of my favourite gardens, The Summer Retreat, with you.
The garden was designed by Amanda Waring and Laura Arison and inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement. There’s a lovely summerhouse, elevated to give a good view out over the garden.
It was all built to a very high standard, with plenty of texture from the stone walls, corten steel edging between the borders and the paths and dreamy plant combinations.
I can just imagine sitting in the summerhouse with a cup of tea, relaxing, maybe reading a book or just enjoying the view. What do you think, does it appeal to you?
I hope you have a great time if you get to The Show, I’ll post more about it this week.
