I know that my garden is new, barely established even, but I have a bad case of horticultural wanderlust. Here in the dead of winter I am feeling the strong pull of the tropics; bright sunshine, soft breezes wafting lush fragrance and warm gentle rains.
So I have decided a renovation is in order. Craving an exotic look I have invested in a few new specimen trees. What do you think?
These should begin to create the ambience I’m seeking. Using the principle of borrowing a view, I will try to frame this lovely vista…
A colourful hedge will give privacy from the neighbours and the road. I can’t decide which I like better, Hibiscus
I can probably use both.
In keeping with my love of productive gardening I will have to include a few new fruit trees!
With a new garden like this I will stave off the dreaded winter blues, and maintain a cheery disposition until spring rolls around again.
No, I haven’t quite lost my mind, but I was fortunate enough to enjoy a visit to the lovely island of Maui recently, and wanted to share some of my pictures.
I feel rejuvenated by my stint in the sun and warmth, fully charged up with vitamin D, and I shake my fist at Old Man Winter. Go on, throw your worst at me, I have a tan, and I will survive!
