A Magical Garden
I've been jazzing up my back patio area that is shared with the clothesline and have been attempting to create a focal point, so that the clothesline recedes into the background. Eventually I will organize a screen of some sort, but in the meantime a frangipani tree in a pot and some gardenias will do the job. Today I found a copper coloured bird bath that I filled with shells and pebbles and a pottery starfish. It looks just how I want it to look!
I took my car in for a service today and across the street was the most amazing and magical garden I have ever seen. Large jacaranda trees out the front, stephanotis climbing along the picket fence, beautifully tended beds and a house that you could barely see for lush greenery! There was a huge frangipani tree with decorative, sparkly hangings on it. It was a peaceful scene that has stayed in my head all day! 'The gardener' popped his head over the fence and I had the opportunity to tell him what a beautiful garden he had. He thanked me and went back to patiently tending his garden.
