And it seems quite definite…certainly here in Gullane, the beach is buzzing, everyone here is golf mad anyway, but now that we are hosting the British Open – like NOW – that has upped a notch and some…
We are all enjoying our gardens, it really is heavenly sitting out here, because it honestly never gets too hot, we always have a sea breeze and let’s face it, you can just jump in the sea if it does get unbearable.
I wanted to show off a coastal style garden in this weather, designed by a friend of mine, Gillian Polley. An Edinburgh based garden designer, imaginative, distinctive, creative and reliable…definitely someone to call on should you need some help.
This garden designed by Gillian ticks so many boxes for me: she has salvaged an ugly old garage, creating a beautiful seating area; it is a sociable space, great for entertaining, but tranquil too, should you find yourself with time on your hands. I love the light heathery palette and her reliance on texture to add interest. She has created a beautiful framework on which the happy owners can work on themselves for years to come.
