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

Rhododendron trees at Robertson

We used to live in this lovely old home in Robertson when my children were little and on the weekend I was sorting through some old images and found this one of my young son Thomas, yes, time does fly, as he is just about to do his final year 12 at school.
I remember every year I was so overwhelmed with all the flowers on this gorgeous pink Rhododendron tree which sat at the front of the house. It was enormous and the flowers lasted for weeks and weeks. There were a few more larger Rhododendron trees further down the long driveway that weaved around the property. I really wished I had actually taken more images back then, I think I must of been busy washing nappies or something.....

and below, are some images that I took on a very misty day in Robertson recently of some more enormous Rhododendron trees on the side of hill sitting in a wonderful old rainforest in Robertson. If you look closely through the mist you can just see how tall they are.

I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew with this blog, I planned to be doing many more posts on this garden blog of mine, I have taken all the photographs but each month I have been getting so far behind with my time and also my main blog takes up so much time. Please accept my apologise for not putting up many stories in the last couple of months, I hope I will find more time in my life this year to spend much more time pottering in my garden blog.
Happy gardening, xx Coty

Old country gardens, wonderful stonework, beautiful old trees and new buds. Ponds full of fish and floating flowers.

Wonderful colours and shapes throughout the season, gardens filled with blooms, gardens filled with colour.

Seasonal blooms, flower work, inspiring garden designs, fields full of flowers that makes person like me what to go and pick every single flower and fill lots of old baskets.

Some of my artwork, I love to paint flowers and gardens and I always paint on huge canvases, this painting I worked with charcoal and paint.

Lots and lots of interesting ideas and images throughout each season.

Great garden tools, clever gardening tips and links to makers of fine tools
