i like these photos of vintage gardens.
what an amazing garden seat above.
and the ivy-covered house with the astounding topiary and the treasured pet cat, wonderful.
the little boy gazing out at the wild garden is something special, too.

the vintage gardens are via this flickr site.
at end is a book i think would be nice, the lost gardens of sydney.

:: ps ::
i have started another blog,this one is to try and help myself to quit smoking.
doing ii-ne-kore has been so great,
it has had such a positive impact on me, to collect and share the things i like,
that i thought maybe i should use that positive energy to help myself with the smoking thing.
maybe it won't last, but maybe it will, we shall see!
