I’m sitting here in my London cottage garden enjoying the silence of the city today so here are six garden photos with no chat in between.
London has been strangely quiet today – no one cutting the grass or having a party nearby. One of those rare magical days when we can hear every bird singing through the day. Just lovely. Feel very fortunate.

I love your seating area.
Thanks Ronnie. We use it every day. So worth the space.
These beds are very beautifully flowered and they are beautiful sets. Even the nettles (I think they are??) in front of the water cans mix well with other plants.
Yes Fred there are quite a lot of nettles and the more I pull at them the more they grow so I mainly leave them alone for wildlife. Hooping to attract butterflies with them. Thanks for your kind comment.
Great photos of a gorgeous garden. I’m loving your sitting out area and envying your dicentra.
Thankyou Linda, the dicentra in the pot, two of them in each pot, was a lucky surprise. I think I planted them in there because I couldn’t think where to put them and they are thrived. Of course there’s nothing to see during the winter in the pot but just now they look fantastic. Table and chairs such a great focal point and we use them every day even in winter. Best wishes.
Your garden looks lovely; lots of self seeders and pretty areas. I like your seating area and that Dicentra is looking glorious!
All looking very lovely. I like your seating area.

Beautiful colours! Where did you purchases the striped garden chairs? Would love to know!
Oh Thankyou for saying so Hannah. They are Fermob. Bought many years ago from the Conran shop in London. Fermob still sell those chairs in many colours but I haven’t seen the striped ones again but you never know. Hope that helps. Best wishes, julie
