How yesterday was a garden’s future and today became its past

Yesterday in a modern Surrey water garden
14.30 GMT stormy, torrential cold rain from nowhere with so much energy that by 15.00 blue skies and sunlight had blown the storm away so that by 16.00 the Water Garden would feel the best of both worlds. The simplicity of 3 elementals – grasses, a tree scape and water. And open to the elements, it would have high energy.

Today, a 100 years ago in a tree-lined village vintage postcard
The future had arrived. At the end of the afternoon, in the heart of central London, a vintage picture postcard was found in passing, made at the turn of last century. It was an en passant moment. Depicting the Victorian tall pines typical of a Surrey village on the Downs, along with the English summer mix of blue skies and grey storm clouds, this scene came with a seasonless birthday greeting. Perspective.
May your view of life today
Be like a garden sweet and gay
