This is Snowshill, a British National Trust property in the Cotswolds. It is exactly what I've imagined that an English country garden should look like, in all its green, flowery glory. Roses and ivy climb up aged stone walls. Iris, lamb's ears and poppies spill over the walkways. Hedgerows follow the curves of the hills beyond the confines of the garden. I fall into the fantasy that strikes all garden loving Anglophiles. I want to make my garden look like this. Alas, I have neither an army of gardeners, nor the ideal climate. But I will have the memory of this day forever.
