The English garden, besides called English landscape park is a manner of Landscape garden which emerged in England in the early eighteenth century, and spread across Europe, replacing the more formal, symmetrical Gallic Garden of the seventeenth century as the chief horticulture manner of Europe. The English garden presented an idealised position of nature. It normally included a lake, expanses of gently turn overing lawns set against Grovess of trees, and diversions of classical temples, Gothic ruins, Bridgess, and other picturesque architecture, designed to animate an idyllic pastoral landscape.

Garden manners at a glimpse:

Roman Britain: formal, low hedges

Medieval: little enclosed, with sod seats and hills

Tudor: knot gardens, enclosed in hedges or walls

Stuart: formal Italianate and Gallic manners

Georgian: informal, landscaped, unfastened parkland

Victorian: bedclothes workss, colorful, public gardens

twentieth C: assorted manners, herbaceous boundary lines

The earliest English gardens that we know of were planted by theRoman
vanquishers of Britain in the first century AD. It is carefully symmetrical formal planting of low box hedges.We know really small about the gardens of Anglo-Saxon England, which is another manner of stating that the militant Anglo-saxons did non keep horticulture to be of import.

It was non until theMiddle Ages
that gardens one time more became of import in British life. There appeared small gardens in the monasteries.

Palaces sometimes made room for little courtyard gardens, with waies through raised flower beds. Other common characteristics of mediaeval palace gardens include turf seats and high hills, or saddle horses, which provided a position over the palace walls. As palaces gave manner to strengthen manor houses in the ulterior mediaeval period, the garden became a simple green infinite surrounded by hedges or fencings.

The House of tudors
followed Italian influence in making gardens which mirrored the alliance of the house, making a harmoniousness of line and proportion that had been losing in the Medieval period. For the first clip since the Romans left, sundials and statues were one time more popular garden decorations.

Gilbert stuarts
were slaves to the Gallic manner for formal gardens. The main characteristic of this Gallic manner are a wide avenue brushing off from the house, flanked by rectangular parterres made of stiffly formal low hedges. The premier subsisters of this manner can be seen at Blickling Hall ( Norfolk ) , Melbourne ( Derbyshire ) and Chatsworth.

The eighteenth century
saw a swing from Renaissance formality to a more “ natural ” expression. Lines were no longer directly, waies curve and wander, and parterres are replaced by grass. Trees were planted in bunchs instead than in consecutive lines, and rounded lakes replaced the rectangular pools of the earlier manner. The garden became unfastened, a park fall ining the house to the outside universe instead than a carefully nurtured safety from it.

In theVictorian epoch
massed beds of flowers ( bedding out workss raised in nurseries ) of alien colorss appeared. Some of the finest Victorian gardens are public Parkss, like People ‘s Park in Halifax.

Gertrude Jekyll is arguably the most influential nurseryman oftwentieth century
England. She popularized the herbaceous boundary line and be aftering a garden based on coloring material strategies. Jekyll saw the house and garden as portion of an built-in whole, instead than the garden as an reconsideration to the edifice. Her work survives at Marsh Court ( Hampshire ) and Hestercombe ( Somerset ) .

Gardening has ever been a affair of personal gustatory sensation, and frequently the outstanding plants of old coevalss are torn down to do manner for the manner of the following. For that ground it is difficult to happen unchanged illustrations of historical gardens in England.

Yet, throughout Britain there are gardens great and little, formal and informal, private and public, that illustrate the British passion for making green, turning infinites of their ain. All are different, and all, like their proprietors and Godheads, have a distinguishable personality.

English gardens spread all over the continent. In Russia one of the best the illustrations of & # 8220 ; wild & # 8221 ; park is Pavlovsk, the summer abode or the emperor Paul I.

To sum up. Features of the English Garden

The European “ English garden ” is characteristically on a smaller graduated table and more filled with “ eye-catchers ” than most English landscape gardens: grottoes, temples, tea-houses, summer cypresss, marquees, fake ruins, Bridgess and statues, though the chief ingredients of the landscape gardens in England are expanses of gently turn overing land and H2O, against a forest background with bunchs of trees and outlier Grovess. The name & # 8212 ; non used in the United Kingdom, where “ landscape garden ” serves & # 8212 ; differentiates it from the formal Baroque design of the Garden & # 224 ; La fran & # 231 ; aise.

The canonical European English park contains a figure of Romantic elements. Always nowadays is a pool or little lake with a wharf or span. Overlooking the pool is a unit of ammunition or hexangular marquee, frequently in the form of a monopteros, a Roman temple. Sometimes the park besides has a “ Chinese ” marquee. Other elements include a grotto and imitation ruins.

Yule

Beginning
:

The beginnings of Christmas and the day of the months of it & # 8217 ; s jubilation are rooted profoundly in the history of the early church. There has been much argument refering the exact clip of the twelvemonth when Jesus was born.

The most recognized decision is that Christmas originated in Roman civilization. On December 25 heathens ( & # 1103 ; & # 1079 ; & # 1099 ; & # 1095 ; & # 1085 ; & # 1080 ; & # 1082 ; & # 1080 ; ) celebrated the winter solstice on December 25. Winter solstice
was a jubilation of the birth of the Sun. They believed that in this twenty-four hours the Sun began it & # 8217 ; s one-year circle, that marked the alteration of seasons and reclamation of the Earth. Christians were loath to take part in the heathen festivals. So by the early 4th century, they began observing the birth of Jesus at this clip. So it is likely that Christmas was as an option to the heathen winter solstice.

Santa Claus:

Santa Claus is an Americanized version of Europe & # 8217 ; s Saint Nicholas. They say that SN is an ascendant of Santa Claus. There are many similarities between them. Saint Nicholas was a bishop who lived in the fourth century. There are many narratives and legends about Nicholas protecting and lovingness for the hapless, including giving gifts to hapless kids and fliping coins into the Windowss of hapless households.

So, their physical and character similarity was shaped to a now familiar Santa Clause. A reasonably old adult male with beard abdomen who wears red-and-white adventitia and ness. His chief function is to convey nowadayss on Christmas Eve ( December 24 to December 25 ) to all the kids who have been nice.

Christmas tree:

In Northern Europe the Vikings considered the evergreen a symbol of spring. With this tree the darkness and cold of winter would stop and the viridity of spring would return.

For the Druids of ancient England and France decorated oak trees were the award to their Gods of crops.

Early Christmas trees were frequently decorated with apples, nuts, cookies, colored popcorn and tapers. The innovation of electricity in the early twentieth century and usage of electrical Christmas visible radiations helped distribute the usage of the Christmas tree.

Carol:

A vocal about Christmas or the winter season in general, which is traditionally sung in the period before Christmas.

Christmas carols in English foremost appeared in a 15 century. 2 priests wrote 25 caroles that were so sung by people who was already a spot rummy. They were singing while traveling from house to house. It was merely subsequently that carols began to be sung in church, and to be specifically associated with Christmas. Now they gather the household, conveying joy, spread the word about Christmas, and do everyone experience the Christmas spirit.

Jingle Bells

The universe & # 8217 ; s most widely known Xmas carol is & # 8221 ; Silent Night
& # 8221 ; , which is sung in many linguistic communications all over most of the Earth. The vocal originates from Austria, but enjoyed great acknowledgment every bit early as the First World War, when soldiers on each side of the frontline laid down their arms on Christmas Eve and sung the carol, & # 8220 ; Silent Night & # 8221 ; , across no adult male & # 8217 ; s land.

St. Valentine & # 8217 ; s Day
The beginnings
of Valentine ‘s Day, like the beginnings of love itself, are slightly vague & # 8212 ; a combination of myth, history, fate, opportunity.

Other experts connect Valentine ‘s Day with two saints of the early Christian church. Harmonizing to one narrative, St. Valentine ‘s was a priest who would get married immature twosomes against the orders of the Roman Emperor Claudius 11, who believed that individual immature work forces made better soldiers.

There besides was another St. Valentine who was a good friend to kids. Because he would non idolize the Gods decreed by the Roman emperor, he was put in prison. While he was imprisoned, the kids that he had befriended missed him and brought him loving notes. Many of the notes expressed the idea that “ absence makes the bosom grow fonder. ” He was purportedly executed on February 14. Some people think this is why we exchange friendly and caring messages on this twenty-four hours.

Cupid
is the most celebrated of Valentine symbols and everybody knows that male child armed with bow and pointers, and piercing Black Marias. There is a really interesting narrative about Cupid and His mortal Bride Psyche in Roman mythology. Venus was covetous of the beauty of Psyche, and ordered Cupid to penalize the person. But alternatively, Cupid fell profoundly in love with her. He took her as his married woman, but as a mortal she was out to look at him. Psyche was happy until her sisters persuaded her to look at Cupid. every bit shortly as Psyche looked at Cupid, Cupid punished her by go forthing her. Their lovely palace and gardens vanished excessively. Psyche found herself entirely in an unfastened field with no marks of other existences or Cupid. As she wandered seeking to happen her love, she came upon the temple of Venus. Wishing to destruct her, the goddess of love gave Psyche a series of undertakings, each harder and more unsafe so the last.

Cupid found her lifeless on the land. He gathered the deathly slumber from her organic structure and put it back in the box. Cupid forgave her, as did Venus. The Gods, moved by Psyche ‘s love for Cupid made her a goddess.

Today, Cupid and his pointers have become the most popular of love marks, and love is most often depicted by two Black Marias pierced by an pointer, Cupid ‘s pointer.

Hallowe’en
Halloween Day jubilation owes its beginning to the ancient fire festival called the Feast of the Sun, marked the terminal of the & # 8220 ; season of the Sun & # 8221 ; ( Summer ) and the beginning of & # 8220 ; the season of darkness and cold & # 8221 ; . The Celts believed that evil liquors came with the winter cold and darkness. Harmonizing to Celts beliefs, on the dark of the Feast of the Sun the barriers between our universe and the liquors universe were at their weakest and hence liquors were most likely to be seen on Earth.
