English Gardens







These beautiful English gardens were designed by British landscape architect Jinny Blom (adorable, first read about her in Domino…) at the Temple Guiting Manor in Cotswold.  The house itself can be rented for special events and getaways—I say we have a girls’ weekend with lots of picnics filled with bubbly and croquet on the lawn, who’s with me?

    Gorgeous…. The Preppy Boyfriends sister is a landscape designer and both her gardens and his parents gardens just take my breath away… should we ever get married I’m hoping to ask her to design our garden for us as a wedding present!

    Kate, I’m so there with you. I’ll bring some delicious baked goods that I make: some little cookies, cake, cupcakes, fruit. English gardens are so amazing and well cared for. I would love to rent a house there for some time.
