My Quiet Place

I’m sure it will surprise no-one who follows my blog that my favourite quiet place is my garden. We live in a town and yet our back garden is surprisingly private, set slightly lower down than the house and with a high wall, a high fence, and a high hedge on the other three sides it’s easy to forget we’re in a busy built-up area. It’s like our own little secret haven, and because the back garden isn’t visible from the road visitors are always surprised to see how much of a sunken green space we have hidden behind the house. The front garden is inevitably much less private but I still love that it allows the house to be comfortably set back from the road, creating a satisfactory feeling of separation from the rest of the world we both truly appreciate ❤
