Winter pretties..

The chill has definetly arrived..
It has been snowing up the Blue Mountains..
We have had ice covering our cars most mornings..
My plants are still having some pretty displays..
Last year this was deep pink,this year a pale shade..go figure!!

I love planting in vintage containers..

I've tried for my garden to have the look of an English cottage garden..

I'm trying really hard..
These are my neighbours wild roses peeking above the lovely..

Winter may be cold but my flowers warm my heart..


  1. Hi Tara, have the fire burning here tonight which is just lovely. Your garden is looking very english. Have a good night Sandy

  2. Hi's nice that your neighbour's landscape fits into your cottage garden. That is an interesting point about your crab plant flowering in different shades of pink every season.

  3. Dearest Tara,

    Those cactus are lovely! Oh, the colour depends on the pH of the soil, that influences always the look of many things. Some calcium does alter it, makes it neutral.
    You mean those roses are blooming NOW? In winter...
    Funny to read about the Blue Mountains, we were there; our footsteps are all over and lots of them in the Sydney area.

    Lots of love,


  4. Tara,
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and for your sweet comments. I came right over to see yours and it's lovely. I adore your definitely have captured the English Cottage Garden look. If you saw my dream house post, you can tell I'm drawn to English style cottages. As far as gardens go...sadly for thumb is not very green. :)So nice to have met you through blogland!
    Blessings & Hugs,


Thanks for dropping by.I love it when you visit..xx
