Modest English landscape with modest allotments on either side of a road that sweeps round a hill running down to the railway line. There's a lot to be said for modesty and I like it a great deal in everyday life.
Two more places to enjoy the lovely results of unassuming modesty allied to great skill and an eye for detail:
I've seen The Concrete Palace Garden and it's beautiful. Its creator is a real plantswoman but the garden doesn't feel like a collection of fine specimens. Instead, it's all the more interesting for being a modest rectangular urban garden filled with colour and movement and texture, and a mix of the ordinary and unsual. It's a place to sit and read and drink tea, to wander around and look at interesting plants without feeling you ought to know their names. The blog reflects the garden and the gardener's modesty, but it's clear they are both quite special.
Addison Embroidery at the Vicarage could belong to another age with its charm, tales of a rural parish and exquisite embroidery. Mary, who writes it, is terribly modest; I'm sure she would never say so herself, but her embroidery and stitching are amazing, and the wealth of detail she introduces into her writing is remarkable.
