A cooling cascade in a Rock Garden

Rock Garden in Albany WA

A nice feature in any garden - particularly if the garden is in Western Australia! This photo was sent in my Brother-in-law, who lives in Albany WA. Click Here

More Pictures from his Albany garden...

The Banksia - Perhaps one of the most familiar of the Australian native plants

The front drive to the garage

Gravel used for the drive provides drainage and provides a natural looking hard surface

A shady Gazebo -with temperatures averaging mid-thirty in the summer, a vital asset!

Packed borders help shade the soil, which is also mulched

A Rosella Parrot admiring the garden!

A shady seating area

Foliage is all important, as is form variation

A Port Lincoln Parrot takes a welcome drink!

We live in an area of Essex called Dengie - a peninsula with the tidal Rivers Blackwater and Crouch forming it’s north and south boundary and the mouth of the Thames Estuary along it’s eastern edge. The resulting ‘Dengie Marshes’ form a vitally significant area for wildlife. With all this mud and water around it is perhaps surprising to find that the area is the driest part of England with on average less annual rainfall than the Sahara Dessert!

Above; the main rear lawn area - our Greyhound 'Rosie' has no respect for it, hence the dead patches!
Top Right; the pond area - in common with our creature visitors, I particularly like this part of the garden!
Opposite; the main patio area with arch-way leading to the lawn. The area is surrounded by fragrance, provided by Clematis armandii to start things off in spring, whilst Honeysuckle, Old Roses, Trachelospermum jasminoides and three species of Jasmine carry it on well into the summer!
Below; four favourites, from left to right - Zantedeschia aethiopica, Surfinia ‘ Blue Vein’, and a couple of my Modern Shrub Roses, the names of which escape me!
