I love to visit old castles and their gardens when I am in Europe so here are some pictures of a few!

This garden is behind the oldest house in Crail. The gardens there are very long and narrow. I liked this one because there were so many nice places to sit and enjoy the garden. Japanese gardens seem to me to be gardens that you look at. British gardens are more practical. You grow fruit and vegetables for your kitchen; dry the washing; let your children play safely; and enjoy tea or even a meal in your garden.

Many old houses have little summer houses like this one.

And here are the women in my family enjoying a walk through an ordinary garden. Many homeowners open their gardens to the public on certain days. You can give a small donation to charity and walk though their gardens.
