The Daily Pick - A Hawkshead Alley by Voluntary Ranger

The English Garden is everywhere in every conceivable corner and is so beautifully done. This image is one of several by Jamie Green. They show this traditional alley garden with its winding curve lane up the hill, lined with colourful plants in planters that are set against traditional white-washed homes. For me, it celebrates the times gone by before the angular 20th century architecture that is not very plant-friendly. So the cottage garden is our image today!

If we all had such lovely gardens wouldn’t we be happier, less stressed? Being here would make me walk slower, breathe deeper.
