For a start, the sun on the timber of the cottage just makes it glow , it's quite lovely! So much promise in the Spring and your Summer garden is beautiful
, I love lots of different colours like that.
Don't recognise some of the plants mind you. What is that flower second from the left, next to an orange lily(?) ? I think I'd be very happy sitting on your porch with that garden to admire. I'd be pleased if you named all the plants you know are there. I think it's wonderful in any season. They say Aussies are tough(well, some are) because we survive the heat, but boy, my cap is off to all of you coping with the freezing winters. I could say it's picture postcard perfect, that last photo, but it has to be teeth chattering cold. Thanks for showing me those.
