Blue, Gray and Green are some of my favorite colours in the garden.
I love my table on the terrace with a large sheet of Kilkenny limestone filled with beautiful fossils.
I recently painted my design studio in this fresh blue with pure white detail around the windows. It brightens the garden even on the dullest of days.
The Hosta is a plant I love in my garden and I have lots of different varieties. It is an annual struggle to keep them protected from slugs. I don’t like using slug pellets so often place a half apple upside down under the Hosta plants and collect the slugs twice daily – a treat my chickens are very grateful fore.
This tree is now approx 25 ft tall and provides shade for the chickens in the summer. It reminds me of the mature -much larger – Atlas Ceder we had in our garden growing up in Holland.
The needles of this very slow growing pine have a fantastic silver on the back and olive green on the front.
This is a detail of the dried bark of a Eucalypthus tree that died as a result of the very cold winter we had.
The mint has a wonderful soft scent and flowers during August and September.
The leaves of the weeping willow tree are some of the most elegant foliage in the garden. They move – dance like – with the slightest movement in the air catching the light on the silver back of the leaves.
