So here you are coming to read about little old me, my world and my love for beautiful gardens and plants. The earth is a precious gift given to us that has taken millions of years to evolve and it is our responsibility to look after this gift and give back to the earth some of the fruit and nutrients that we have been given. Plants and trees are big contributors to the human race and of course animals and we should all look after our own corner of the world to help make sure that this does not stop.
There are many parts of the world that use trees and plants for industrial manufacturing and it is very damaging to the environment which is why I felt like I should write about the great efforts that some people go to with regards to making their corner of the world (their garden) a well maintained, inspiring and beautiful abundance of life.
Some of the most inspiring gardens I have visited are listed below and I would encourage anyone to visit these places when on holiday in any of these locations or at least have an online tour of the properties to see the creativity and beauty that can be created in open spaces and gardens.
- Mirabell Gardens, Salzburg, Austria
- Kenrokuen, Kanazawa, Japan
- Desert Botanical Gardens, Phoenix, Arizona
- Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden, Pattaya, Thailand
- Claude Monet’s Garden at Giverny, France
Each and every one of the gardens and properties I have visited has had a unique and creative design that show clearly the different cultures and tastes that exist around the world. Each with an abundance of different materials, textures and plants that have been used to create an epic Alice in wonderland kind of experience for the world to enjoy and of course giving back to the earth life, fruits, nectar and oxygen and creating multiple different habitats for small insects and mammals.
Here are some of the most captivating views I have seen on my travels:
