A Picket Fence with Agapanthus (Lily of the Nile)! by 


Another shot of my garden leading back from the horse paddock.

Christmas time here is Summer time and what is flowering time for my blue and pink hydrangeas acompanied by blue and white Agapanthus (Lily of the Nile) and a large hedge of Brunsfelsia (Yesterday, Today and Tommorrow) which is just finishing now. I’ve tried to colour co-ordinate with a Blue and White theme. The flowers around the Flowering plums (Blieriana) in the front are blue and white Petunias.

Got the bug!
Am I obsessive?
Camera shutter worn out!
Computer suffering overload!
Did I take another 500 photos today?
Back up falling behind? :(
Can’t decide what to upload?
Yes that’s me!

  • Hi Carolyn, thanks for the lovely comment on my garden, you’d be most welcome but today I must tell you is liquid sweat at 37 degrees. I’m going to the beach. Already had lunch down there and now I’m going there for a BBQ dinner. It’s too hot! A thunderstorm is brewing, I can’t wait! :)

    What a joy this is, Gabrielle! Your love for artistry in your garden is delightfully obvious! Gardening is so much like painting, but with so many more variables! I love your color coordination of the blue and white – a feast for the eye!

  • hahahha! Hi Pat, yes a painter, well I can paint fences and houses not like your gorgeous work. It is true, a garden is like a painting but what happens when I keep changing my mind! Get me another canvas please! LOL! It’s funny you know, years ago I bought this painting of a cottage with the beautiful garden around it, picket fence, duck pond and two girls with straw hats. It’s something that I’ve always aspired towards. I have the ducks but my pond is down in the swamp! LOL!

    This is beautiful Gabe! Do you have an open day when all the people can come and have a look????

  • Hi Al, no! I got asked to put it up with Open Garden Scheme with another friend who has been excepted. It’s too much work! I was thinking of joining the local garden club again but heard that people just want to take snipets of everything. Last time I joined a club years ago, that’s how it was, they would take things off my potting tables. I’m too generous by nature and they knew how to take advantage of that. I don’t mind but when it’s something prized and you’ve waited all year for it to flower and then they destroy it! I’m totally reserved about it. My friends come over and have tea parties and that suits me fine. You can come! :)

    Definitely a garden worth being in the Open Garden Scheme. If you could cope with all the visitors that is!

  • Hi Enivea, I was just saying to Al, I couldn’t cope, there’s no privacy, I’d have to lock up the horses in the stables and hope that no one goes out to the barn. It’s just too much hassle. People pinch things and I’m going there. I was asked a few months ago from a friend who has been excepted in the area. They were looking for two more gardens. There’s too much work and I’m can’t see any reward other than making money for them. I don’t think the money goes to charity? Not sure!

    I think a portion of the money goes to the owner’s nominated charity. But it would be much simpler to just give a straight donation!! I agree, just share with those who give care and respect to your hard work:-) Wish you were closer…lol!

  • Yes I’m still waiting for our cuppa together! Well what cha waiting for, get on Sally! There’s probably a bit of swimming between here and there! :(

    Thank you very much Gabe. I’ll take you up on that offer next time we get up that way. I don’t blame you for not opening if all that crap happens. It’s a shame.

  • Hi Al, back from the bay, the water was beautiful! It’s so hot here! What have you got? Is it still raining, can you send some? Of course you can drop in when you’re up this way.

    It’s unusual that anyone begs us for rain. This we’ve had over 1100 mil. You should see Lake Burley Griffin. It’s a floating log jam. LOL.

  • Hi Al, I finally got to see the news tonight, I saw the logs, what a mess! :(
