Here an impresion of my garden.
It’s about 900 square meter big.
There is an small channel next to my garden very handy for watering the plants.
There are very old fruit trees about 70 years old.
My ant planted these. There is an apple, prune, pear.
But also old peony.
Hope you injoy it.

Wow, what a great place to go relax and soak up the beauty. Just beautiful. The apples and prunes should keep the doctors away. Great yard I am very jealous.

A lovely mixture of formal and informal. I like the look of the privet (?) hedge around the garden. And a good use of old tree stumps to form the edge of another. Fabulous colour and use of the low light to make your photos look so wonderful.

Thanks for sharing.

What a nice peaceful setting you have there.I like your little canal that runs through your property and the size and shapes of your hedges really show off your gardens.Nicely done.

Very nice pictures! Of a very nice setting. How lovely…....old, established gardens, a waterway and those beautiful old trees. Thank you for sharing a small glimpse of your home with us.

so beautiful … and to have the channel of water beside the gardens, well, that takes it to a whole new level.
Beautiful.
