It is Spring and it is all about the Yellow Garden – daffodils and the Wattles have never looked so stunning.
July 2016 – before the stone wall, the fernery and the lavender hedges. No plans it just evolved.
Then by May 2019 it was a much different vista!
It was a long dry summer and it was not until May that we finally got some good soaking rain – the garden responded and grass peeped through quickly – and the kangaroos quickly ate it.
Rosa di Pagola has emerged from its life as a cricket pitch. There is a meandering path down that leads past the artichokes with their purple seed heads – and then the alien salvia…
The Pom Pom Tree is out – almost breaking under the weight – it looks good enough to eat!
At Uccello Lane there is a cottage garden which runs a bit wild but is always interesting- there are salvias, a random climbing rose and various herbs.
The fantastic “autumn into spring” flowering Japanese Windflower (Anemone x hybrida) dominates the ground and has to be regularly cut back just to contain it. In the early morning under the shade of the magnolia tress the windflowers stand tall and follow the sun.
