A couple of years ago (February 2012) we visited Cynthia Goodson's garden in Rwanda (HERE and HERE), and we all fell in love with it. At that time, she stressed that she couldn't take credit for the garden, since she'd moved there just months before. Well, she can certainly take credit now! She just sent in a slew of photos of what she's been up to for the past two years, and it's spectacular! She says, "We moved to this house in Kigali, Rwanda, in 2011. It is a diplomatic residence, so we use the terrace and garden for receptions and other large events fairly often. Over the last almost three years, we have made a number of changes to the garden, but the biggest were opening up the area in front of the terrace with grass and widening the planting beds along the larger lawn below. If you would like to know more about the garden, which we are actually leaving quite soon, please take a look at my blog, enclos*ure, and click on ‘Our garden’ under ‘Categories’ in the right-hand sidebar (or just click HERE). These photos were taken between April and November 2014." How can you bear to leave, Cynthia? The garden is stunning, and obviously took LOTS of inspiration and work. Thanks so much for hiving us an update! ***Cynthia sent in so many great photos that I couldn't whittle them down, so we'll spend two more days in her garden, welcoming in 2015! Stay tuned….
