Our garden paradise

Posted on 18 December, 2017 at 21:35


Garden view from our kitchen window.


If there is one place in all the world that Larry and I love to be - apart from with our respective families in England and the USA of course  - or, in Larry's case, on the golf course - it's in our rambling garden.


When we bought this land back in 1997 it was just a sheep paddock.  No trees, no shrubs, no flowers; just grass - and a small flock of black-faced, black legged Suffolk sheep.  For me, it was as though the stars had aligned, as I grew up in the county of Suffolk in England, and knew only too well the sound of those lovely sheep bleating in the fields nearby.  It was like coming home.


Before we had even built the house, we joined our local Landcare and Land for Wildlife groups to learn what we needed to do to create habitat for local wildlife, and so began our passion for Australian native gardening.


We learned the importance of planting upper, mid and under-story trees and shrubs that are indigenous to this area, to attract and cater for the needs of feathered and furry creatures large and small.  We learned to minimise our use of herbicides and pesticides, to provide a source of water for wildlife, to pull weeds by hand, to compost everything compostible, and to let the balance of nature take care of most pests in the garden. 


To my relief, we learned that it's OK to mix some exotic plants, like roses, salvias and lavenders into our native garden, to provide a burst of colour when many of the native plants have finished their flowering season.  To our delight we've discovered that many native birds and bees don't discriminate between local and exotic plants.  For them, if there's a flower there's pollen and, year round our garden is a hive of activity.


Almost every plant we've bought, we've bought locally and, with few exceptions everything has thrived - with virtually no help from us. Even in the driest years (2009 was a shocker!!) we have been lucky to still have lovely morning dews and the occasional morning fog, which enable plants to take in moisture through their leaves if not their roots.


Since opening our home as a B&B back in 2014, we are busier than ever inside the house and have far less time to spend in our wonderful garden.  We desperately miss being able to sink our hands into the soil and truly connect with nature.  But regardless of how busy we are, every now and then we can pause and look through any window in our house to see our magnificent view, our beautiful garden and the wildlife that lives in it. 


We live in paradise and couldn't be happier.

I happen to be commenting to let you know of the really good discovery our princess developed visiting the blog. She figured out too many things, with the inclusion of how it is like to possess a very effective teaching spirit to have the others smoothly have an understanding of some complicated things. You truly surpassed her desires. Thanks for distributing those effective, trusted, informative and easy guidance on this topic to Gloria.

I wish to express thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this particular crisis. Because of surfing around throughout the online world and finding solutions which are not powerful, I was thinking my entire life was gone. Living without the presence of answers to the difficulties you have solved all through this review is a serious case, and those that could have negatively affected my entire career if I had not noticed your blog. Your primary mastery and kindness in dealing with a lot of things was crucial. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn't discovered such a solution like this.
