Small gardens

Our daughters both live in flats and have gardens the size of pocket handkerchiefs. But what much-loved small spaces they are, somewhere out-of-doors that they can call their own.  The two gardens are very different, the one in London is up in the air with a fine view of chimneys.

 But Wee One's, here at ground level, is a veritable jungle. It has been created from what was formally a depressing patch of bare earth and rubbish. Her partner, Roman, has very green fingers and an eye for unusual plants!

'I want a jungle garden' Himself tells me.
And there's lots more plant life in the flat!


  1. Beautiful !
    That garden does not look small.
    The third photo is wonderful.
    I would love to see the garden with a view of chimneys.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. I've added some photos of the London garden for you to see. Both gardens are about the same size, not big at all but much appreciated spaces.

    2. Thank you.
      How lucky they are to live in a city but have some outdoor space to let them breathe !
      Both gardens are wonderful and show how even with a small place your can have such beauty.

    1. Oh that's very true, Maybe, although Roman is dreaming of a big garden and growing lots of veg!

  3. 'Share My Handkerchief' doesn't sound so appealing.

    1. Too true, Tom, perhaps that's why neither of them have blogs.

    2. I should have replied with Argh!! How unhygienic! (That spelling doesn't look right.)
