Uccello Lane – Open Garden Victoria October 16th & 17 2021 was Cancelled for this year
Yes – for the second year in a row our Open Garden had to be postponed – this time to 2022.
With COVID restrictions this made perfect sense and we continued to work hard to get everything everything ready – making seats, creating safer paths and finishing the Il Pergolato di Rosa with some beautiful Mary Lou Pittard Tiles. None of this work in a garden is ever wasted – and it just means by next year everything will be bigger brighter and ready to shine.
But for this year it was all about the Wisteria!
2020 Pandemic – and here we are again..
In 2020 during the pandemic we went through all seasons. With a total lockdown in place, the usual garden help were not available.
Hardly any pruning or trimming was done – just trying to keep things tidy and the undergrowth down to make sure the snakes etc had no where to go.
Summer bought with it rain followed by warm days – followed by rain. Growth was amazing – but by early January we could feel the heat and the grass is drying off. The roses were magnificent.
In 2121 in our 5th lockdown at Winter again – the best thing is to hope for a Spring to be magic as always – the wisteria and the salvias blooming in all their Purple Glory!
For the sixth lockdown in 2021 we took pictures of how the garden looked when we would have had the Open Garden (mid October) – it looks spectacular!
