Photo a day....25th June.
A City Haven.
Another small one that optically confused the viewer into thinking it was much bigger.
The Chelsea guide said....
"This is a small, intimate, sheltered garden adjacent to a ground floor apartment within the bustling city of Moscow; a calm space in which to escape the fast pace of a professional lifestyle.
Large shrubs and small trees break up the boundary lines, hold the eye within the space and create a degree of privacy from neighbouring gardens and apartments. The planting is simple, based predominantly on form and shape, texture and shades of green, with the interjection of small flowers. In essence, the design creates the effect of a small woodland area within an urban environment.
All of the plants used are hardy enough to withstand the Moscow climate.
A small raised water feature and bold contemporary artwork provide shots of interest, and contrast with the planting and the rendered boundary walls."
I admit I liked it very much, but I was at a loss to understand how it had a Russian connection. It seemed to be a pretty universally appropriate garden. However, remembering that it had the Moscow theme enabled me to find it in the guide and thus be able to name it correctly!!!
(NB For obvious reasons I have done no gardening today. Tomorrow is looking more promising...!))
