It’s probably because I’m a reincarnated resident of Pompeii that I dream of having a courtyard garden. There is something wonderful about a house around the garden. I think it’s why I like Syon House and Wilton House, which are both fashioned from former monastic sites, with their inner cloisters.
Oooh, and I’m definitely a fan of topiary too. The garden below was my favourite in all of Pompeii and Ercolano.
