Fenced Garden...


Another gorgeous little garden to inspire you all to get out there and dig the dirt. Could there be anything more fulfilling than getting down and dirty with the earth - whether you have a plot or a pot - it is the ultimate in weekend relaxation.

I constantly dream of moving out of our rented apartment so I can have my very own garden to play in.
This image is so good for that dreaming.

Awww Shannon that image is truly lovely. You know, I've never really been one to want to do alot with gardening until I travelled to Paris. Now I can't get enough of visiting open gardens and nurseries searching for inspiration. Also since I saw that exquisite bedroom created by Catherine Martin for the movie Australia I have found myself completely obsessed with orchids! I want to fill my home with them.

I'm glad you all like this one - fencing a garden is such a great way to get started - the limited space is like working with the borders of a canvas - it certainly helps not to overwhelm the whole process of it all - which can be a little daunting when one begins the gardening journey.

That is really sweet isnt it? Did you happen to see the Jamie Durie show on Sunday night where he travelled to France for inspiration and then did a garden (in Sydney i think)? Quite amazing!! I could just imagine pottering about in that garden , it looks so welcoming! Mel xxx

This is a great inspiration. We had our first garden this year and went organic and almost everything was overrun by bugs and disease. But we are determined not to buckle and start spraying everything with poison so we have great looking toxic food.

Yes, the bugs are a nuisance. I find that mixing up your plot with some marigolds and nasturtians is a great way to keep the bugs at bay. And mixing in some herbs with the veges is a good idea too. And don't forget, a little bit of beer in a container will entice the snails into the container and send them off to dreamland - smiling!
