Greenhoods and Cymbidiums

 These tiny green-hood orchids are indigenous to our area and  reside under native and exotic plants in my front garden. They have been there for 40 years.
 Pterostylis nana - dwarf green-hood
 Pterostylis pedunculata  - maroon hood
 These cymbidium orchids I grow in pots
 these are in dappled light under bottle brush and meleluca

Last Visit to the Victorian Garden

A mixture of indigenous and exotic flora forms a pleasing vista 
 Lovely distant views are a feature
 Influences from mediterranean gardens
Planted by former owners in the 1970s the little birds just love these generous flowers  
 Jane's stone walls will feature again in the new garden in Harcourt
