I went on the internet and found SO many roses that depict the era of the house, and bought as many as I could afford, and created this amazing English Garden with English, Hybrid Tea, 1914-1930 roses.  English Lavender (the "real" English Lavender) can also be bought online. English Tudor, Santa Clara, To Go, Lavender, Roses, Cottage, Internet, Tea, Mansions

This English Tudor sits on a 1/2 acre lot, and it's not easy keeping it up to say the least... so watch out what you wish for if you cannot afford a gardener (which would be me at this time).  "Try" to keep weeds at bay by pulling out weeds every week.  Also, using a prolific ground cover, IE, strawberry ground cover is amazing...
