In My Parents' Garden

I would like to share a few pictures that I took in my parents' garden a summer or two ago. It's a little green wonderland attached to the back of the terraced house that I grew up in. We moved into this house when I was about 6, and the garden started off with your typical patio, lawn and fir tree arrangement. 

Over the years, my parents have turned it into the lushest, greenest space. There is a goldfish pond, natural stone paving (my Papa used to take me to collect these stones in the surrounding countryside when I was a kid), and loads of little ornaments, trinkets and sculptures. The garden is brimming with plants in raised beds and containers, and is the perfect place for breakfast in the sun and family barbecues.

  1. Beautiful photos as always.
    I love the hanging plane. Your parents garden looks great. I hope that one day my garden will be a wonderland for my kids and the butterflies.

  2. The butterfly pictures are unreal!

  3. It's my dream to have a garden like this that's full of life and interesting things that draws people out into it.

    One day...

  4. What a beautiful place to be Annika!
    It is so obvious from your wonderful photographs, that so much love went into their work.

  5. It's amazing!! Your parents need to landscape my backyard!
