A triangular pergola

Architects, eh? You can rely on them to come up with a triangle while mere mortals would have created a rectangle. Christian says he used three posts for his seating area instead of four because that’s all he could fit in his car. But I don’t believe him.

This isn’t the first architect’s garden I’ve seen that uses triangles – remember this garden, one of my all-time favourites?

Weekend inspiration: Viola Deltini Rose Pink

Bath

These violas have been flowering non-stop since November. The winds of late have created a bit of a vortex on my patio and there have been pounding rains as well. But they’ve withstood it all. I planted some crocus to poke up through them – no signs of them yet, though.

Winter grasses

Radstock
Radstock, Somerset

I first passed this garden in Radstock in late summer. It’s bold planting for a public space, stuffed with grasses and late-season perennials. I passed it again a few weeks ago and the grasses were at their winter best.

I’d love to know more about this garden – who designed it? Does anyone know?
