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

Dramatic Red Winter

Winter is here and the ski season opens this weekend in Australia

and it is really cold here in the Southern Highlands today.

I'm sure it may snow soon.

My little office is nice and warm this morning as the sun flows in through the window while I type this and as the last of the red leaves are leaving our gardens

What a rich and wonderful colour it is!!


  1. I love these images Coty. What a beautiful study in red. Can't believe it's going to snow there. We are enjoying our late spring.

  2. And here we are in the HEAT of summer. Those colors are magical & they remind me of Christmas.
    I've missed your posts, precious Coty. Trying to get daughter to look at your merchandise for her spa at the Hilton in Orlando. She carries a few paper products, so we'll see. xx's Marsha

  3. Although I enjoy the summer aand especially the ocean...fall is my favorite season. It's hard to image snow could be in your forcast!

    Love all the beautiful, vibrant red!!!

  4. I'm feeling all warm and snuggly ... the red thing just calms me down ...
    kinda feels like fall ... oh no, did I just say that ...

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
