Blending in beautifully⠀ ⠀ Faking it till she makes it to be part of the cool set at the end of season party? Or staying true to her inner beauty and just shining on through the fashions of colour and season?⠀ ⠀ This Olivia Newton John of roses has been blooming in my garden since May. .⠀ ⠀ It’s a fair wee while since I queued around the block with my mother to see Grease at our village cinema..but I still clearly remember feeling so perturbed as a pre-teen when Sandy changed her ‘vibe’. She so didn’t need to! ⠀ ⠀ And here’s the proof, in a rose, doing her thing amongst the loud proud autumn crowd and doing it beautifully.⠀ ⠀ #autumn #rose #grease #innerbeauty #olivianewtonjohn #truth #truetoyourself #lateseason #mygardennow #mygardenvibe #jj_seasons #jj_gardens #gardendesign #plantingdesign #marianboswalllandscapes #wonder #gratitude #beauthenticallyyou

Day 13 - closed Different garden, different gate, different outcome 😉 #gate #wall #closed #garden #spetchleyparkgardens
Day 12 - open One of the many gates of Sissinghurst. #gate #wall #open #sissinghurst #garden #nationaltrust
O is for orange Orange seeds of iris foetidissima. Apparently these plants are often grown for the seeds which don’t usually fall. Cut the whole stem and use them in a floral display. They last for ages... who knew? 😜🤓 #orange #seeds #irisfoetidissima #iris
Grassy light catcher.. the wonders of ornamental grasses. This is Miscanthus sinensis ‘Zebrinus’. #miscanthus #ornamentalgrass #dof #depthoffield #autumn #fall #backlit #bokeh
Day 7 - cover Wall covering around the sun dial at Packwood House. #cover #climbingplant #sundial #packwoodhouse
Day 5 - dirty Dirty wall or autumn squash presentation prop? 😉 #dirty #wall #squash #gourd #autumn #garden
Day 25 - symmetry Go to technique for garden designers everywhere; a bit of symmetry goes a long way! 😉😊 This shot taken at National Trust Coughton Court. #garden #symmetry #coughtoncourt #nationaltrust #focalpoint

Details . Dixter Details . Wheelbarrow track through the vegetable patch. Just wide enough, Unobtrusive and a great mowing strip too. Brick basketweave. The plant labels are great too. . . #designinthedetails #brick #basketweave #path #greatdixter #designlife #jj_gardens
Details . Dixter Details . Nathaniel Lloyd was a self taught architect and author of two seminal books including A History of English Brickwork. Local work included Higham and Prawles and at Dixter he learnt his art by working with the master Lutyens. . Brilliant Arts and Crafts wall detail. . . #designinthedetails #kentpegtiles #cobbles #mosaic #greatdixter #designlife #jj_gardens #artsandcrafts #lutyens #nathaniellloyd
Details . Dixter Details . Tiles and cobbles in the dachshund mosaic given to Christo by the staff. I’ve been looking for the date, was in the last 15 years - for his 80th maybe? . . #designinthedetails #kentpegtiles #cobbles #mosaic #greatdixter #designlife #jj_gardens #lutyens #nathaniellloyd #christopherlloyd
#Repost @sarahsalway with @get_repost ・・・ This is so lovely - and always makes me think of @marianboswalllandscapes . . *********************************************** . . I’ve been fascinated by Vita Sackville West for years. Living near and working with her beloved trio of Knole, Longbarn and Sissinghurst, and their wonderful guardians, I’ve read most of her (published) writings, walked so many ways thinking of her, and empathised with how it felt to feel everything so very much. A free soul with extraordinary magnetism she was Cara and Christo combined in a previous life. . . She was the original gardens correspondent with her chatty articles on plants and life, and I’ve planted many many plants on her recommendation. . And a few just to annoy, like the Rose American Pillar I put by my gate after reading how frightfully frightful and nonU she thought it waving so brashly pink and cheery over gates in Sissinghurst village. . So I’m really touched and honoured and SO grateful to have such a wonderful friend @sarahsalway . .

A magical evening at Killruddery house and wonderful historic garden. . . Fascinating family history of brave and creative earls including one who made clocks. The clock on the bell tower is powered by dripping water! . . @killruddery #historicgarden #clocktower #ireland #ebts #jj_gardens
Which would you rather? Tiara or Orangerie? . . It is said that Harriot Lady Meath so wanted an orangerie that she sold her tiara to pay for it. . . She used the tiara design in the mouldings around the roof to remind us all of her generosity/folly/vision..or husband’s wisdom/folly in saying they mustn’t have one.. . . I guess your choice of those depends on your answer to Q1! . . #orangerieforme #killruddery #tiara or #garden #jj_gardens #designlife #landscapearchitect or #countess @killruddery #lovekillruddery
