    Thanks for sharing this true hidden garden. Analyzing its impact or why I even liked it, I think it's a combination of two things: (a) while it's a bit formal and perhaps even slightly outdated in its basic look, it's a beautifully maintained specimen of this particular kind of garden, and (b) the stark contrast, between the building tops and the intense greenery and slightly organic shape that all plantings take on, is very pleasing to the eye. Thanks for putting this together for us.
