My garden blog filled with beautiful flowers and trees, seasonal fruits and vegetables, clever ideas and tips and just wonderful gardens. Like so many I adore gardens, however I am not a garden expert, this garden blog is purely for pleasure showcasing beautiful gardens that I am lucky to explore. I would like to share with you a small part of my life living through each season in many lovely gardens in the Southern Highlands and country areas of NSW, Australia

The Softest Pinks

There is a lovely old lady in my garden wearing a beautiful pink dress

This week in my garden a beautiful old tree blossoms into a mass of pink colour, the bees come from everywhere and feast on her and can you just imagine what the honey would taste like. People slow down as they pass our front garden. My car is covered for week or two in petals and as I drive off down my road the blossom fly into the air behind me. She is very close to our neighbours garden as well and I really don't think they like her much as leaves her sprinkling of blossoms in Spring and leaves in Autumn. I would never let her go though, she is gorgeous, she is a lovely old lady that has been standing ever so proudly in my front garden for many many years.

I would love you to leave a comment and if you have time, drop over to my Styling blog to see the Debutante Ball gown that I created.

  6. That tree is absolutely beautiful and I especially love the photo of the blossoms in the ballet slippers. Sometimes I forget that it is spring down there when we are heading into autumn and winter but it is so great to see spring happening there. I'll be sure to watch for warm summer shots in the dead of our cold winter too!

  7. Coty,
    Love the gate peeking through the tree limbs.
    Just beautiful. The prettiest pinks in the whole world come from nature & you capture them so well.
    Happy weekend to the Farquhar family!
