Someone's Garden

Over the Summer holidays the other half of Dwell (not the NZ half) visited family in Claireville on Pittwater, Northern Beaches of Sydney. Below is a taster from my Dad's garden ... I really want that copper pot to come home with me :)

The sculpture below is called 'Fandango' ... made by my Dad. We now have a 'Fandang'o style Bird Bath in our garden. All wood is recycled, pre-loved & now loved some more

The fabulous Bird Bath below was created and constructed by team 'Lisa and Andy' ... also known as my Sister and Brother-Inlaw. Again all recycled, discarded, unused & preloved materials were used. it's new home is in the tropical garden of David & Janet at Claireville.

Decorate Your Garden

I love the idea of decorating outside. There really is so much you can do with your garden. Small courtyard to the 'yard', the suburban block to the rural vista. Think outside the square, recycle your old boat and use it as a sand pit or herb garden. Place those rusty gates apart to form a gateway to a path. Get thinking! 

Below are some images taken by Dwell South Coast on a recent visit to The Australian Garden Show Sydney

A beautiful Olive Tree .... Sharlene wants this for her new garden (which at the moment resembles a building site - because it is)

And Sharlene will probably want these pots too :)

True Story ....

It's true ... my boy had his 13th birthday recently. I thought I'd load some photos of him on my personal FB page to celebrate the year gone by and so his family overseas could catch up on what he has been up to. Well usually I have many to choose from - not the case this year! The photos I loaded of him were 'ALL' the photos I had (14 in total). Now if I had been thinking of finding photos on front doors, letter boxes, peoples houses and their gardens then that would have been easy!!

I can't help it ... I like taking photos of other peoples houses! Below are 4 favourites
