Timaru Garden Tour #2

This is the garden of Janet and Joe Young, and it is three years old.
The sunny vegetable garden overlooks strawberry cages and chicken coops.

This little arrangement caught my eye, in particular the fluffy pom pom aquilegia.

The garden has such a stunning backdrop. Mountains in the distance, a lovely pond and grazing sheep. You almost wouldn't want to let the roses get any bigger.

This flower garden is looking pretty established. I was especially taken with the drifts of snow in summer.

I sowed this as seeds this season and mine's nowhere near flowering, so I took this photo to remind myself what I have to look forward to. (A great groundcover for a hot dry area, like my front garden.)

This gazebo was a lovely spot to sit in for a few minutes and rest out of the sun. I wish I could fit one in my garden. I'd need to bring those mountains to look at too.


  1. Beautiful countryside! I could sit there and enjoy that view forever, too. I can't believe they've done so much in such a short time. Thanks for the tour.

  2. really, really beautiful! your second photo with the statuette arrangement looks fantastic... as if it came out of a painting, it feels like the little lady will cut a couple of those flowers for her basket in any moment!
