As most long time readers know, I'm obsessed with gardens. Kind of funny considering how much I hate bugs and even more so spiders. But as a city dweller, I long to be able to see greenery outside my window and to take a walk in nature whenever I desire. I do try to take advantage of Central Park but I have to share that with about 18 million other people. Probably why I fell in love with Bella Pollen's English country garden when I first spied it in Vogue. You can read the entire article here. Bella and her husband fell in love with it too when they first saw it but it took many years of work to restore it and the neglected house to an inhabitable state. I'm sure the final result more than makes up for all the hard work. Just another reminder to get out and smell the roses this weekend!
