The phoenix garden by mave

The phoenix garden

I had a walk to the river today. This is the house on the bridge. When the river was in flood earlier in the year, all of this garden was under water. Every year the garden floods and every year the owners come up with a wonderful garden - again. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes.
Such a beautiful English country garden !

Their effort has to be applauded. I guess if they know it's coming they know how bounce back. Still heartbreaking though.

It is a beautiful garden and a lovely capture. Sad that it gets flooded so much, though.

Unbelievable that this beautiful garden was under water.

Lovely capture and garden wonderful how it recovers.

It looks like the house is set up a bit so at least it does not flood like the garden. It is such a lovely home and on the river too. Great find!

A charming garden.

It looks beautiful, but I am not so sure I would fancy getting flooded every year.

@taffy @onewing @harbie Thanks for your lively comments. They have lived there a long time and have another garden higher up behind the house

Wow - I am so in awe that they are so resilient. Hope the water doesn't get into their house.

What a lovely garden. Are the pink flowers on a climbing rose?
July 18th, 2018  
@merrelyn Yes Merrektn. The pink is a climbing rose and the orange is a trumoet vine.

How very lovely.

Well done those people! The flooding must make the soil very fertile.

How pretty- they certainly have learned how to work with their circumstances! Good shot.
