In the Garden

In the Garden with Jinny Blom

Garden Walk

As we’re waiting for spring flowers to bloom and trees to bud, we thought we’d share some beautiful gardens designed by one of England’s most renown designers, Jinny Blom (and yes, her last name means “flower” in Danish!)  We saved the article about her in Veranda last year and filed it away for a rainy day (which we’ve had a lot of lately) and when we read another article about her in the spring edition of Flower, we dug the pictures up (so to speak!)

Who wouldn’t be inspired to don some gardening gloves and do some pruning after seeing these beauties?  Since we’re huge fans of pinks and purples in our own garden beds, we are smitten with Jinny’s romantic touch.

This spring, Jinny will be working closely with HRH Prince Harry on a special garden for the 2013 Chelsea Flower Show which will support Sentebale, a charity which gives aid to Lesotho’s neediest children.  This project will be quite different from the ones she’s done in the English and Scottish countrysides but sure to be a favorite.

Are you spending time in the garden yet?

    Spectacular! Has me wondering if we are ever going to really get spring and start seeing things turn that beautiful vivid green again!! I was on the lacrosse field last night and it was so amazingly cold as we were all there bundled in our boots, warm down jackets, scarves, hats, I sooo badly want spring and cannot wait to get out and start planting!

    How beautiful – can’t wait until our weather is warm enough to be gardening…my yard so needs a little tlc. The stone wall is the perfect backdrop for the climbing roses and the alley…fabulous!

    Wow, yes, spectacular. These cold windy days we’ve been having makes me a bit reluctant to start in the garden just yet. But soon….

    Absolutely gorgeous. The climbing roses are so pretty .. We planted some last year and I’m hopeful they will so some climbing this year! Our weather has been mild enough that we’ve been able to get out to do a little yard clean up. My local nursery advised me to wait a few more weeks before to any serious planting. I think we are all anxious:)

    Jinny has a definite green thumb! Love that her last name means Flower!!!

    I’ll be in London this summer…wonder if it might coincide with the Chelsea Flower Show…wouldn’t that be heaven to attend?!

    Wow they really are magnificent. My parents are off to the Chelsea Flower Show this year, both being avid gardeners.

    I always have the best of intentions for gardens, but my thumbs are more brown than green. So I’m really enjoying these photos and dreaming of spring!

    Wow, wow, wow. I especially loved those gorgeous irises! Hope you both are well…I’m slowly transitioning back into blogging. Thanks so much for your sweet comments! I was down at Pike’s Market a few times the last few weeks and thought of you both when I was there!
