If you followed my blog last year, you will probably know that I am the world’s most reluctant gardener. I have black thumbs, a poor manual labour work ethic and after I dug up a rather large pile of cat poo last year, I just about gave it up. But give it up I didn’t and my husband (yes, I can’t resist throwing that term around now) and I spent every waking moment (well when it wasn’t raining of course) pulling out weeds, replanting grass and trying to give ourselves a blank slate. It took a lot of hard work but this year, hopefully all we have to do is plant some colourful plants and add a lovely bench and it should look heaps better. So let the garden inspiration begin! First in the list is the extraordinary garden I found belonging to South African architect Minky Lidchi in Johannesburg. I fell in love with the beautiful proportions and definitions, not to mention the amazing architectural and sculptural details scattered all around. I can really imagine loosing myself in this garden for a few hours/days!
