Flowering bulbs are often associated with a cool temperate climate, did you know there are many interesting easy to grow bulbs better suited to Australian east coast growing conditions that love higher humidity and our wet summers? Hippeastrum aulicum actually grows on trees, in rock crevices or among rocks as in this Paradisus garden for John & Susan Trathen’s Balgowlah garden. Maybe there’s a sheltered spot for some of these swish Sth American flowers hippeastrum species, to add late Autumn colour to your garden too ..
… and as you can see, quite a view now of the rotary hoist and bedroom window next door across the northern boundary fence.
On the look out for good flowering screen shrubs to around 3.5m that will remain non-transparent from ground level to conceal the fence again but soooo many I could be using.
What do you think, the freshness of this Tibouchina sp. an abundance of high summer amethyst Rotheca serrata or Holmskioldia sanguinea lutea the Golden Mexican Hat in cascades of late summer chartreuse… ? DECISIONS !!!!
Also, I saw this excellent Day Bed Canopy call the Nest designed by Steve Warner of Outhouse Design at Grand Designs…
Perfect for the Winter Sun Trap space… should I ? should I !!!
