If you were to ask me what my favorite garden theme is it would be by far the English garden. A very English garden combines form and function with lots of romance. There all of the senses are delightfully treated with glorious splendor. With a full range of beauty from the formal evergreens, the useful culinary and medicinal herbs, the romantic roses to the playful daisies, dianthus and foxgloves interest would never be lost.
This enchanting garden theme has been cheerfully duplicated the world over and never more so than here in the United States where our climate is most suitable for such a wide variety of charming specimens. I am most thankful for all of our foresighted forefathers who carefully transported these most useful and admired plants along with them from there home countries for many more generations to enjoy!
