Autumnal trees in my back yard. April 2015.

I have a large garden in Australia. There are three main parts to the garden: The Arboretum – we like to call it that, but it’s actually just a small former sheep paddock into which we’ve crammed as many trees as possible; the riparian area, which can only be planted with indigenous species; and the main garden that’s visible from the house, with the lawns, shrubs, roses, perennials, veggie beds, and more trees. I planted most of these deciduous trees between 2001 and 2003. The orchard, the gum trees, the cypresses, and some of the poplars were already there when we bought the property in March, 2000.

  1. It is beautiful…I came via Fikalo’s blog… My Mom loved to paint standing in nature from the time I was a small child. We lost Mom three years ago, but I have some of her paintings here.. I thought everyone’s Mom was covered in oil paint and linseed oil from her driftwood projects… Lovely memories…Michelle
