Thank you for sharing your lovely garden. I have so enjoyed a walk around it with my early morning cup of tea!

Thank you Andrewr, name changed.
The co owners do a little bit of watering and digging, but the main work is done by myself and my wife, no hired help (would be nice to be able to afford it sometimes).
Glad you all enjoyed it, despite the weather and a few losses after the Winter and early drought, it is looking quite reasonable. Wish the weeds died as readily as the expensive plants though.

Lovely photos enjoyed looking at them all.

3 Jun, 2012

 

Wow what a garden, beautiful design you've got there and some fabulous plants. Hats off to you for keeping it looking so nice, looks like a huge garden.
