Petersham garden

I like some of the individual houses in Petersham but for the most part I feel that it lacks character as an area. The notably exception to this is the stretch of cottages arranged unevenly along Petersham Road so this is an area I often walk to on my regular walks. The cottages face the main road with its fierce traffic but there is a quiet path that goes behind them, splitting their rear gardens in the process. Here we can see what can be done with a split garden as this one makes the most of the late winter sun.
