GBMD: Places To...

I found this on one of the planters used for Octavia's Orchard at Southbank recently (see my Roll Out the Barrows post for more). It struck me it's not only a fine philosophy for the National Trust, it's pretty good for my garden too :)

Can you sum up your garden in a similar way?


  1. I'm just off to the Southbank so will look out for this; it pretty much sums up everything a garden should be! Lovely quote!

  2. A perfect description of what a garden should be!

  3. What a wonderful garden quote! Flighty xx

  4. Wise words from a wise woman :)

  5. Love it and certainly what I aspire to.

  6. Thanks everyone :)

    Caro - I know you got to see this and thoroughly enjoyed it :D
