  4. Oh my dear friend, I do hope you have somehow copyrighted this photo because it is stunning! I can see that many people would want to lift this image and use it on their websites. *I love it*.

    Is it your garden (if so, surely you hire a gardener?) or is it a Botanical Garden or similar?

    Oh what a beautiful, restful shot. I often look at your photos and think “I would like to be there … in that scene”. Just lovely.

    Fee 🙂

    Burstmode, Burstmode, Burstmode.

    It wasn’t quite what I was thinking of…


    Inquisitorial, thanks for your visit, and for taking the time to comment.


    Michaela, the garden covers five acres – there is some serious photo fodder there 😀


    Our Susan, I would love to have a garden like this, but yes, I would need the gardener! The lady who owns this garden built it from bare paddock, and has placed each plant with purposeful design. As I wandered through it, I *knew* she must be arty – the garden is a testament to harmony and balance and creativity. Sure enough, there is a studio tucked away, where she paints, and does leadlighting.

    I have some more shots to post, but nothing to do the place justice. I was photographing with one eye on the subject, and one making sure Blossy didn’t wander into the dam. :/


    Fee, there were many places about the property that were equally delightful, and as the lady was also a person who matched her garden, I could have spent a week there and been the richer for it.

  8. Funny bunny. (laughing!)

    If there is a chance either of you dear blogging girls would be able to use the pic for non-commercial beautifying purposes – shoot me off an email, and I will return it with the no watermark, full res file attached.

  9. I have added it to my blog darling Mrs BB, and I love it, but it looks better here. probably because I couldn’t have it as large as yours here. The flowers look like 3D here! so amazing. I still love it though, but shrinking loses some of the impact lol. You know what I mean 😉
