Beautiful, chico!! Why am I not surprised!? Hubbie makes a good garden ornament... That's what I tell mine anyway.

Beautiful garden, I love it, could you come and work on my 16 acres up north for me. One of these days l would like to do gardens all over my property, it would drive my husband crazy.

hey chico, tell me is that plant in the first photo, right in the middle in the background (the round one with seperated roots) is that a pittosporum??? at a guess undulatum??? it darn looks like it, but i cnat seem to see it properly, jsut wondering...if so its doing well in a cold climate, does it have troubles???

pittosporum is a very interesting species and very bird attractant, most countries will have a species of pittosporum that is endemic (meaning comes from that area). so is it???

Mel,I am not sure which one you mean,if you mean the taller rounded bush,it's a Saucer Magnolia,blooms in the spring.
Way in the back corner is a Lilac and some small round cedars...almost all my plants are planted with the thought of attracting birds and butterflies,except as far as birds,the birdfeeders do much better
Maybe you even mean hubby I'm getting to know your sense of humour and he attracts a lot of things,but not birds or butterflies
