I am working on some landscaping plans for a couple of projects and have been dreaming of gorgeous gardens. It’s funny how much you absorb of your Mother’s taste. When it comes to gardens I always fall in love with formal ones. And if they involve stone and lovely gates and statuary, so much the better. Here are some of my favs.

The iron gate and entrance to the Small Cloister at Westminster Abbey, London.

Can’t you just feel the stress falling away when you put yourself inside those pictures? Well, if you have an army of gardeners that is. A girl can always dream.
