Luisa Rollenhagen added this to 14 Gardens Straight Out of Fairy Tales
13. The Frog Prince. In the Brothers Grimm tale, a princess drops a golden ball into a pond and promises a loquacious frog that she will befriend him if he retrieves it for her. She regrets her promise and rejects him, but he later reveals himself to be an enchanted prince. This beautiful, serene pond in a meadow in Sussex, England, is certainly a flawless setting for any pond gazing.
“Take a moment to step away from the everyday and wander these beautiful and dreamy garden landscapes, which evoke the classic stories and settings of storytellers such as the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen and Shakespeare.” — Luisa RollenhagenI feel I should admit something. When I see a story like this on Houzz, I think, “Darn! Why didn’t I think of that?” Only I don’t think “darn”; I think something else I won’t repeat here. I’m so envious of the creativity shown in this article — it’s one of my all-time favorites.If you need a mental break, to be taken away and enchanted by something for a few minutes, save this one for when you really need it. Find a quiet spot and just savor it. Rollenhagen has found the most alluring photos of gardens on Houzz and cleverly matched them up with favorite fictional tales. By the way, she matched up the one seen here with The Frog Prince. Full story: 14 Gardens Straight Out of Fairy Tales
