This is a little garden , closed by walls . On one side there is the vegetable garden at the back and at the front of the house the flower garden, full of little plants an common flowers and also forgotten vegetables and flowers. There are hidden places full of rooting plants in pots under the shed of an apple tree. The apples and other fruits such as gooseberries, strawberries will make some delicious tarts and jams or syrups.
