Secret Gardens

There is something almost magical about a
garden in the middle of a busy street,
Tucked away in a corner, up a turret or in
the grounds of a museum or gallery.

I love the garden designed by white hot
Brazilian designers the Campana Brothers
in the V and A museum in London. Such a zen like
escape from the rush of the city outside its walls.
Or how about the jungle like explosion of
foliage bursting out of this little steeple like
structure in Hanoi, Vietnam.

We all need a little sanctuary in the city or
to feel the balance of order and chaos that
gardens are often about.
Find your Xanadu in Kubla Khan now.
