Front gardens 4, Esbjerg, Denmark 2012

I don’t know why a choice was made to palnt boxwood in a semi-circle. At a distance it looks a bit odd but close-up it has a kind of magic to it.

Let me introduce this new series: While I live in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, my mother-in-law lives in Esbjerg, a mere 3 hour drive away. But it is a drive straight across the country and more things than you’d think are different.

One of the differences is the love of front gardens in my MIL’s neighbourhood. I have to admit that Peter and I usually get a laugh out of looking at them, and during our Christmas break I decided to photograph these frontgardens. The result might surprise you as it did me.
