I visited a garden on Sunday as part of the Australian Open Garden Scheme. This garden is on a farm on sandplain country. The owners had collected old items and these were displayed around the verandah. The sewing machine attracted my attention. Old posts were used along the edges of paths. They are lucky enough to have a lake as part of their garden, what a lovely place to spend on a hot day. Lots of native trees have been planted with plenty of them having finished flowering although there was enough other roses lavenders and numerous other trees in flower. A real bee's heaven. If you have the chance to get to some of these open gardens you will not only see different styles of gardens lots of the gardeners donate the entry fee to a local charity, a win win for everyone.
