Google is today celebrating the legendary English garden designer Gertrude Jekyll. She was born on November 29, 1843 and is credited with designing hundreds of British gardens plus a number in France and the USA. The National Trust in England owns five which are open to the public.

Jekyll was not only a horticulturalist and garden designer, but was an accomplished musician, composer, embroiderer, woodworker, metalworker, artist, garden writer, photographer and botanist. Her early studies as an artist influenced her approach to gardens, with JMW Turner a particularly strong influence. Her arrangements of flowers have been said to mimic a painter's brushstrokes.

Occasionally, the BBC II Garden Show spotlights some of her gardens and I do enjoy looking on. I'm glad that Google is celebrating her! smile
