Gardens in Rome and The Vatican

I was very fortunate to have spent three full days in Rome over the holiday. Although brief, I did manage to take a few photos of gardens in the area. Here is a photo of a tiny segment of the extensive gardens at the Vatican. I love the how everything is so very nicely maintained. Of course, they have an extensive staff, whereas I, have an astounding staff of a very solid one!

This is a photo from the extensive gardens at Villa Borghese, which is located behind ancient city walls. On this extensive property is also an excellent museum, which I highly recommend, in addition to visiting the beautiful park grounds!

Visiting some of the beautiful gardens in Europe on the one hand is a source of great inspiration; on the other it can be overwhelming because I cannot get my garden to approach this level of excellence. But I can try to make my garden the best it can be! I enjoy looking at the design elements of my European jaunts and now have some ideas on how to improve my humble space. Such a true pleasure to see what can happen when green space is cherished!
