The castle had many windows such as this one in its walls. I found it a nice frame for the soft, flower-covered cliffside they looked out over.
There are more elements than vegetation that can make up an interesting garden landscape. I love to have rustic hardscapes in my garden. I like the looks of these two outbuildings on the castle grounds. And you can even see that nature has started her own garden using this lovely backdrop.
Although this city street landscape is simple, imagine how wonderful your own city would look and feel if they would adopt such commitment to aesthetics?
I like to think that I inspire such upgrades in aesthetics to my own area. In fact, within two years of starting my own garden, at least five other people in a four block radius began their own ambitious gardens -- huge perennial gardens, some taking up their entire front yards!
Gardening is contagious!
