I am a big lover of gardens (not in the night though, it's creepy). There are three styles of gardens that I absolutely love. The first one are the British Gardens. My being British has nothing to do with it, they speak for themselves. They have a very magical feel to them, and I think it's the magical aspect that has led my appreciation to the three styles I'll be talking about. It almost feels like I am walking through a painting. Have you ever wished to actually be inside of a Disney movie? Not the real ones, the animations!! ahahaha ... like in Space Jam, Michael Jordan gets to go inside the cartoon world ... that kind of feeling :P ... I'd give anything to really be in Michael's place. Well, walking through a British Garden in a similar feeling.
It's romantic, surreal, fresh, and so soothing! The feeling of lying down bare-foot on perfectly kept grass on nice summer day is beyond incredible. It's insane! Well, lying down on any good grass is a nice feeling. Why don't people understand this, and keep their pets off of grass! It's not nice to be thinking of how many pets have answered mother nature in the spot you're thinking of lying down onto. *frusty*
Anyhow. I found some amazing pictures of 4 of UK's top gardens:
Beth Chatto Gardens, Essex
The Gardens of Samares Manor, Channel Islands
Sissinghurst Castle Garden , Kent
Hidcote Manor Gardens, Gloucestershire
