The Thuja plicata looks almost prehistoric, ready to wrap one of its trunks around your neck. thank you for putting up the images as inspiration for us pannaannap.

Cool pics pannaannap. Would love a walled garden like that to protect my veggies from the wind.



Anybody got any idea what this nice spire of a plant is?

Woodstock Part 2 is even better than part 1, a real pick-me-up on a damp day like today. If I ever win the lotto, I am making a walled garden....my ultimate fantasy ever since I read "the Secret Garden" as a child!
It looks as if there were glasshouses against one wall....where you have photographed the lavender...am I right?
Super photos and lovely plants....my own perennials are all looking a little fed up with all this rain, so it is very inspirational to see what a garden should look like!!
Thanks!

I don't know about the glass house but it would make much sense. There are arch-like structures further down that could have been a part of some sort of heating system??
