My own garden in Woodside SE25 is featured in the film that follows taken before we moved down here.  A big wrench to leave after 30 years but it seemed appropriate when the ash tree died.

My Garden – By Tomas Edward Brown.

A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
Rose plot,
Fringed pool,
Ferned grot–
The veriest school
Of peace; and yet the fool
Contends that God is not–
Not God! in gardens! when the eve is cool?
Nay, but I have a sign;
‘Tis very sure God walks in mine.
