Auntie Mona’s secret forest garden モナばさんの秘密森庭

Okay, admittedly it’s non that secret. But it almost feels like that, full of places to hide out and explore. My neighbour Mona’s garden is at the verge of merging with the surrounding forest. And that’s the charming part about it. Isn’t this what a garden should be like? Gigante ferns in harmony together with old cherry trees, big burgundy snails (=escargots) and fields, or rather seas of germander speedwell. The surrounding trees make the air fresher, and honestly it’s impossible to know where the forest starts and the garden begins. This type of garden is where I imagine characters in Jane Austen novels to be spending lazy days, drinking wine, eating lovely tart and conversing about the charming gentlemen in the village.
正直に、秘密じゃないですが、探検できる場所や身を隠せる所がいっぱいあるので、感情は秘密のガーデンだよ。モナと言う隣の人の庭は周りの森と融合中、でそれは魅力の点です。そういう風のは本当の庭だと思う。巨大なシダ植物門や古い桜の木、エスカルゴ、鍬形ソウ属の海が一緒に調和に。周りの木のため、空気がうまくて森と庭の境界を分かるのはほとんど無理だ。このような庭はジェーン・オースティンの本小説に出そう。登場人物はガーデンで暇な夏の日に、ケーキを食べ、ワインを飲みながら町の魅力的な紳士について話をしているそうなイメージを想像でいきる。
