There’s just something about a beautiful, cozy garden that looks a bit wild and free that makes me feel so at home and humbled. While I can appreciate a manicured appearance, and certainly understand the purpose in maintaining such a clean-cut garden, it doesn’t quite spark the same kind of joy as the wilder one. Whenever I see a garden with a few overgrown vines here and there, and rows of veggies and herbs growing more like a forest than in a straight line, I’m happy.
I know we’ve mentioned hygge before, but that’s just because it’s such a strong part of my every day life! As a matter of fact, I’m currently building the biggest garden I’ve built to-date (which still isn’t that big), and in doing so, I’m keeping hygge in nearly every aspect of it. There’s not a single daydream I’ve had about this garden where hygge wasn’t there.
So, until I’ve got the pictures to express exactly how hygge I’m intending it to be, here are my biggest inspirations.
