Little garden

Previous - Next

The little garden has a rather high wall to the south, covered with climbing plants and shrubs treated as wall plants. On the northern side an earth bank four and a half feet high, dry-walled on both sides, has the top planted with bushy things. At the western end a fruiting Barberry is thickly overgrown with the large-flowered white Jasmine; then come other shrubby plants, with bush and Rambling Roses and Scotch Briars; the whole forming a flowery fence nearly as high as the opposite wall.
