Gardens Everywhere You Looked-More Photos of Exeter, England

Well, we are working on our basement shelving and I came upstairs to get away from the mayhem for a minute and give you some more photos from Exeter, England.  I'm not sure what this vine is.  Maybe my English Herbal Companion can help me remember what it is!  I'm trying to show that you don't have to have a big space to have a garden.

Have to Love Herbs If You Live on This Street

Room Enough for Parsley and Lavender

Always Room for Bay Laurel
Really loved Exeter.  Love its history.  Have to get back for another visit.  So much more to see.  Hear rumblings below.  Must get lunch ready!  Then it is off to get shelving put together and recycle old dried herbs!  It's always something!  Hope you are having a great day!  Talk to you later!

Only us Americans think we have to create the biggest gardens ever... When I get settled I am going to make a wee herb garden just like your photos. Thanks for the inspiration.

That's why I brought it up, TG. Readers may be starting to think about their herb garden design and hoping that I can give some ideas! Think small! It's a great idea to do containers!

Thanks, Jim! Isn't it perfect! Exeter is a lovely city.

Thanks for stopping by both of you!

Just when I was regretting how small my herb garden area is and thinking about widening the borders...hmmm...may have to reevaluate??
Love the photos and the touch of electric blue on that wonderful doorway.
Have a good Thursday!
