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.
