garden girl


I am on an England kick lately. Oh, and a garden kick. Maybe I am just out of the loop, but have you noticed a lack of garden-focused , inspirational blogs? Luckily, I just came across this lovely Tumblr, Gardening in Heels.  

I am a predictable, boring, cliché. You can show me a million different versions of the English girl in a cottage garden photo shoot and I will never tire of it. My dreams are made of this stuff.

  1. It’s so true! I’ve been able to find helpful how-to garden blogs, but not garden-focused inspiration blogs. Most of what I’ve found so far has been from magazines or tumblr. And have you noticed how most are focused on the Northeast? So strange that there aren’t more for the different climates and garden styles.

  2. I agree that there doesn’t seem to be enough readily available garden inspiration. At least not of the variety I’m looking for – I’m not really after how-to’s or gardening advice, but more inspiring imagery of outdoor space that will motivate me to get outside and get my hands dirty.

  3. Join the anglophile club; I could look at this sort of thing for days! I find the Brits’ haphazard, but organically beautiful gardens endlessly fascinating.

  4. 100% completely concur. England captured my heart a long time ago and when you add their lovely gardens and cottages, I get heart palpitations!

  5. how lovely! i wish i had a garden. or a terrace. or a window box. heck, i’d settle for a pot plant right now. in a bid to be a better english girl, i shall rectify the lack of plants in my life this very weekend, i think! 🙂
