So the “Secret Garden” is finished – we will add the water feature and some plants later but for now it is just blending in with the rest of the garden and is truly magical. It is most perfect in the early morning – protected from the wind and cold acting like a suntrap – Bonnie and I head out to for breakfast and get ready for the day. Sometimes the big grey kangaroo visits but mostly we miss him but know he has been there by the giant droppings!
Eats new grass and visits – then gently jumps away…no hassle…Bonnie is very unsettled..
The door with the chair to rest before entering
We made the chair from the crate that the slate came in that we used for the crumbling wall

Hidden from view and the wind
The perfect Breakfast Spot

The large ‘Louis van Houtte’ Elm tree has not been at its glorious best this year. The leaves are all mottled and is clearly under attack from some sort of beetle or the like. The idea was that it act like a giant umbrella over the Secret Garden – but clearly we need some expert help to look at the tree.
