The English love gardening. They can talk about their gardens, displaying knowledge that could do credit to a professional botanist. Their gardens are often real masterpieces of landscaping. In Oxford each college has its own gardens and a park with nicely mown lawns and trimmed hedges. (vide: New College and Wadham College gardens) And, even living in a flat, English people try to create a garden on the balcony. In the picture, my Oxford neighbour's patio with potted plants and a feeder for the birds. Isn't it lovely?
