Garden Inspiration...

As you can see from the pics in the last post, there's quite of bit of grass growing up here on the farm. My dream is to plant a garden, which will probably take me a lifetime to achieve, but I'm starting to look around for inspiration. The aim is to divide the space up into green rooms - spaces that lead into other spaces - and then to plant out those rooms with my favourite plants. Fragrant plants such as gardenias and magnolias mixed in with some succulents and boxed hedges are the direction that I'm heading. I thought that this pic provided some lovely inspiration - it has a drama without being to pretentious which would suit us as we're fairly relaxed folk. Anyway, loads to think about!

Okay, now I'm really jealous! I'm in the inner-city and can only dream of something like this. Totally beautiful and I can smell that fresh air from here! x

Isn't this garden divine... One day I hope my garden will look something like this - although it will probably take me a lifetime to achieve. However, I follow Dame Elisabeth Murdoch's path with her own beautiful garden Cruden Farm down in South Australia - and take it all, one day at a time...
