Survival of the fittest in a suburban garden.


The Garden

Survival of the fittest in a suburban garden.  After 30 years of planting things in the wrong place and having to have everything that my friend has in her garden (even though it's heaps bigger than mine) there had to be some serious culling done.

I have no compunction in lending nature a helping hand when I think she's bombed out:- hence the painted air plants and succulents!

So if you're a purist or you're totally over the ubiquitous box, DON'T come to this garden. However, should you choose to do so we would love to see you and you would be very welcome!
