Looking Down

Looking down on your garden gives you a chance to study the design and exposes any re-shaping of beds that is required. So we occasionally take photos from our upstairs windows. The photos of parts of our front garden in early spring show the design based on circles and flowing lines with grass reduced to a minimum to give a route which is soft underfoot.

We shall take the same views in different seasons to see how effective the design is through the seasons.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

Many thanks for comments. Looking down on your plot spotlights different things to those you notice when wandering with your feet on the ground.


It is interesting to look at your garden from different places. When i designed our garden originally I tried to include a viewpoint from each window. Another idea for a blog?
