French Country Garden
The marriage of colorful cottage-style gardens with formal design, clipped hedges and stone hardscapes inspired the 19th-century French impressionists — and this romantic design style can look just as beautiful in 21st-century yards. French-country gardens blend the elements of formal design with informal, almost cottage-style planting beds. You have clipped hedges, and you also have more natural plantings that look a little wild.

“Spring grew into summer, and the rhythm of my life now included Nell. I learned that her secret lavender and mint beds were deep in the woods, out by the chuckling stream that disappeared underground. She gathered plants she needed every day, and she was as a child who gathers flowers in May.” — from the novel SINFUL FOLK

Modern Country Garden Jardin de la Ballue, La Perouse, France
A linear flower bed that has alternating flowers and plant material. This one looks like tulip bulbs, boxwoods, roses, and a lollipop pruned evergreen of unknow variety for height. This type of bed could be done with a wide variety of plant choices.
I am partial to topiaries and cylindrical boxwood. Another beautiful garden that looks like it belongs at an English country house.

Light the Entry for Safety The wrought-iron lantern mounted high on the wall of this porch sheds enough light to show the way to the French doors after dark. Fitted with two candlestick lamps and flame-shape bulbs, the lantern has an understated traditional look that suits this country French exterior.

Nature is not always tricked in holiday attire, but the same scene which yesterday breathed perfume and glittered as for the frolic of the nymphs, is overspread with melancholy today. Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson,..............Monet's Garden - Giverny, France

This door is probably the most photographed in St Ives, Cornwall, and even has its own Flickr group. The 200 year old door belongs to St Ives Bakery and has been listed by its owners, who were at one time made an offer to put it in the Tate gallery, but as the owner said: "Where would I get another 200 year old door?" http://www.flickr.com/photos/delboyalbums/6260514881/

The Famous St Ives Green Door The 200 year old door belongs to St Ives Bakery and has been listed by its owners, who were at one time made an offer to put it in the Tate gallery, but as the owner said where would I get another 200 year old door.
This door is probably the most photographed in St Ives, Cornwall, and is 200 years old. That being said, the placement and color of the flowers in front of the door is what sets it all off. Dreamy.
Like the door to the secret garden...
