Thanks for taking this photo, Lynda!

Hi, I’m Sophia!

I’ve created this blog to put on examples of my gardens and little useful bits of info that can’t fit onto my web page.

I’ve been designing for quite a while now; along the way I bacame really interested in designing playful spaces; quirky and individual.

I love: Roses; Hardwood decking; the Colour combinations of lime green and dark purple, and orange and violet-purple; Creating a sense of enclosure within openess; Japanese maples; the Garden of Cosmic Speculation; Water in a garden; Pictorial meadows; Northumbria in Bloom; Verbena bonariensis.

FYI, if you hover over the photos you will see a little info.


I dislike: Snails eating my beloved hostas; Claustrophobic outdoor spaces; Bare soil between plants; Bad bedding; Concrete pavers in unnatural colours; Bindweed and ground elder…
