Pretty as a Picture.....

These shots i have had on file for quite some time so i have to apologise because i have lost their place of origin....but regardless i had to show you because they are simply beautiful. The house above has the most gorgeous garden and was a source of inspiration when designing my garden 5 years ago. I guess i have always liked messy country gardens; not too formal because i don't think i could keep it up. Also its not really me.
One of my favourite spring flowers the hellebore......



Some flowers at the Vintage Rose......


Isn't this just gorgeous. I love the mix of box hedges and roses; it gives the garden shape and form during the winter months when the roses are dormant.

...and don't hellebores grow beautifully in Tasmania. the green ones grew all around our peony tree. That corner was a picture all year round

Beautiful pictures, I love the messy imformal garden myself as well. The last photo was gorgeous with the barn style house in the back ground.

Hope you are keeping cool Manda - we are off for a dip.
