Winter Garden

Our front gardens are bracing themselves against the cold blasts of winter. The pretty summer flowers are gone and the succulents are starting to flower. I'm not much of a gardener and could not name the flowers I'm growing. No doubt many of you would! 

Lea and I transformed a dying and tired looking front garden to what it is now. 

Here are a few shots. My digital camera is basic and therefore doesn't do the gardens justice.

Hope all is well. I am on school holidays and enjoying some time to do activities that a busy term doesn't allow me. Getting a bit more running in.

  1. Hi Paul. The garden looks lovely. If you lived in my country I would be after you to do mine.

    Loved your comment on my blog about computers.

  3. Pretty garden with your nice house!!
    I LOVE the red flowers blooming on what looks to me like an aloe plant, it must be related! At first I thought it was what in England is called "Red Hot Pokers" but when I saw the plant, I knew it was something else! It is something else all right, it is gorgeous!!

  4. Your garden looks lovely. You and Lea have done a wonderful job with it. I wish we could grow some of those plants over here in a garden but our climate is to harsh for that. :-(

  5. Beautiful! My black thumb salutes you, even if you can't name them, you can grow them, and that's what counts.

  6. Looks wonderful! Good job! It's funny to hear that it's winter there and we're having a hot and dry summer here. Have a great weekend!

  8. What a lovely garden! So unsettling to hear winter this time of year on the other half of the globe, though. We're suffering our hottest days of the year here!

  9. Wow, what a stunning garden! You and Lea have a very good design sense. The succulents are beautiful. We saw a lot more of those when we lived in SoCal, but here in Wisconsin they don't seem to flourish. Must be the snow.... Enjoy your running time!
