I love the way you call it your "back yard"...to me that means a few square feet of concrete! I really enjoy seeing the plants that you are able to grow ...thanks for sharing them.
I love the Elk horns! I saw the biggest one I've ever seen at Australia's Zoo in Beerwah. UNBELIEVABLE! ~ jb///
Gorgeous!Thank you for the pictures and visit to your garden.I adore that wheel barrow turned planter!Have a wonderful day!*^_^(=':'=) hugs(")_ (")Š from the Cool Raggedy one
Loved the peek at your garden! Your plants look wonderfully healthy! Does the drought affect them at all?
That Zyggies look like my Cactus Orchid maybe they are from the same family, my has white flowers
Hi Mate..As this is the 2nd time I have commented [Idont know where the first one went].So once again I'm pottering around your garden great show of colour.See u soon xoxo
Birds nest ferns - so rewarding. We have a couple in our garden, and they are doing well even in the drought. Ours are in good shade, yours look to be in a more open area, yet still going well.
Oh, you get me every time when you post photographs like this!! I just love looking at your backyard. The whole entire yard is like walking into a botanical garden.Love the wheel barrow idea. So, so clever.What are the pink dainty flowers in your bird's nest fern? Gorgeous stuff...more, I want more like this. *giggles* These so brighten my day.
More lovely pix...aren't you having a drought up there? Our 100 year old elkhorn fern is looking very sick without its daily hosedown, necessary in summer to keep it healthy. It is too high for me to tip water from a bucket, and we aren't allowed to hose ANYTHING now. Don't wheelbarrows make great planters! Ken was going to chuck our old metal barrow out years ago, but I stopped him just in time. I planted petunias in there about 5 years ago and they just keep coming up every year without any attention from me, although like everything else they are struggling now.
Forgot to mention in my previous post - have you read Di Morrissey's book "Barra Creek"? I got it from our local library today and can't put it down! I've only read three or four of her books and as they appear on the library shelves, I snap them up.
Love your plants!! That last one ...We have a giant one of those- but I've always thought it was called 'Staghorn' Are they the same???I'll post a pic of mine today so we can compare them!Junie
Hi Jeanette:-) Trying to get caught up with everyone...you'd think I'd been gone for a month! lol Such beautiful flowers and plants you have in your backyard...we had another snowfall yesterday so I still can't see if any of my Spring flowers are coming up yet.
Wonderful - what a fantstic blog - I toured along the Murray River and loved your area - in fact all the areas we visited - and visited and visited lol
Lush! I was very touched by your tribute to Alan, watching it today on my Dad's ( who died Nov 05) birthday.
Besides the fact that the plants are beautiful, I too can't get into the Blog of Annie ! Since she changed her template I can see her blog, but then I always get the message "Internet Explorer cannot open ..." and I don't have her email adresse either. What should we do ? I try since 3 days !
Jen I tried to open Anni's blog with Firefox and it worked so I told her in the comments that we couldn't reach her and also transmitted your message !
I can imagine your lovely backyard. You have many beautiful plants. Transforming the old wheel barrow into a planter is so creative.
Hi again...Just had a message relayed to me from Gattina.I'm not sure, but I think I got the blog template coding set for Internet Explorer now!!Thanks so much for caring. I just hope now that you can drop by for a visit...Missed you. :o)[at least it's working for me on my IE ---but I had to clean out my IE cache before it showed correctly with no error messages. I use Firefox, and it loaded fine from that browser, I never thought to test it with IE 'til Gattina told me you're having problems --and others also. *keeiping my fingers crossed that you can get in*]
Your old wheel barrow with the sempervivums looks GREAT! What a phantastic idea!
Lovely pics of lovely plants. Our birdsnests dont look so good, they got badly burnt on those really hot days we had. Thanks for sharing your garden!
Your plants are looking great. I love those wonderful ferns. Mum used to grow lots of the Elkhorn (are they the same as Staghorn?) and birdsnest ferns. Hope you had a happy St. Pat's. Enjoyed your jokes :)
Hi Jan ~~ Thanks for your comments -- I have got behind as Peter was on my computer a lot of the time. I will be glad when he is safely home and over this eye operation, which sounds awful. Glad you enjoyed my posts. Your garden is beautiful and the photos so lovely. Thanks for sharing. It has been very hot again today and I had a visit to the urologist for a check up, and have to have x rays in November, so that's good. Hope you are keeping well. When you rang the other day, the doorbell rang at same time, so I put the phone straight to Peter.Take care, Love, Merle.
Jen, one day I tell you I am going to pop! in and sit in that lovely back garden of yours and enjoy a great chat with a blogger friend. I'll bring the drinks :o)I just love your barra! and the rock garden pieces it holds.Have you had rain tonight? we did.best wishes Lee-ann
Hi Jen,I love your pictures of plants, I can't get mine to give so much detail, I must be doing something wrong. Then again, neither do I have your range of beautiful plants, and am very glad that you share them with us, thank you.And the wheelbarrow, I am looking for a wooden one to tart up and hold my little garden tools in the gazebo, sort-of as decoration - yours is inspirational.. more thanks..:-)Della
I love those red flowers, beautiful!
