Garden Tour...


 'Mia Bella Gardens' has had to be downsized by half - due to wonky hips and the inability (and time pressures) to maintain such a huge 1/2 acre garden. 
But these are photographs of the back garden which is just the right size for me.  :)

Birds nest fern...

Potted cymbidium orchids...

 Water feature...
Large pots and rocks...
 Lots and lots of orchids...

Quite a few rhododendrons...
 Beautiful poppies...
Always self-seed in the summer gardens...
There are a few favourite Roses...
Orchids in pots...
At least 30 different camellias... 
And all sorts of perennial pretties.
The pool area is rustic....with wood and rocks.
 This outdoor seascape is painted on pallets...
find out how to create it HERE.
 There's lots of poolside seating...
 The paintings are simple...with orchids in pots,
 and shrubs that are low maintenance.
 Abutilon (Indian Mallow) is a fabulous flowering shrub 
that attracts the nectar eating birds.
 The other easy care annual in the planter and pots are 
portulaca.
They have succulent type leaves.
Wonderfully drought resistant.
And long flowering in lots of colours.
