This is a photo of a corner of the garden, with some added pots that came down from my mother and the elephant and cupid. This is what you see when you drive up and get out of your car. In another week the geranium maderense will be out and absolutely spectacular. The prunus behind was in full flower and the lemon is covered in lemons and the tree with the hanging posts is a Red Cedar, a Queensland native which is going through its dropped leaf stage. I dont know if they do this in Queensland but down here because of the cold they do, This one doesnt get as affected by frost as the other one we have, I think this one came from a more cold tolerant area. The hanging pot on the left side has a native dendrobium orchid in it, also about to flower.
The big green shrub is a rose, my most favorite Lamarque which will snother itself in creamy white blooms smelling of lemon.
This is all to make me feel less depressed after spending time with my mother yesterday. She was fine, the place is lovely, its just that oh gosh is that I may come to.
