My weekend inspiration....













Sorry for the lack of posts this week. It is school holidays here this week so we have been busy trying to squeeze in some activities as well as a bit of work. Thank you all so much for your beautiful comments this week. It is very inspiring and encouraging to read them all. Sometimes progress seems a little slow when you are renovating so thank you!!

I have found these beautiful gardens in Sydney designed by Landart and am using these as inspiration for my yard. I hope to spend the weekend doing some work in my garden...if only they were in Brisbane I would let them come and work their magic in my yard....hopefully one day it will resemble something these.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!!

So lovely, I am trying to plan a garden and love seeing these pictures. I also love when pictures that are posted can pop full screen for me to be able to examine much closer. Thank you I am off to examine Landart now. xo, MB

Oh what fabulous images.I absolutley adore the box in the big stone planters and the path with the gate. I guess I love those two because they are quite English looking. XXXX

Oh Amanda, your yard will be incredible. I love simple green, lots of hedges and creeping fig - topiaries and throw some water in and a little bit of white, and that is PURE heaven to me. Gorgeous!

Wow, you have just gave me more for our garden file. I haven't been able to get out because of the rain and frost down here, so it is all about planning at the moment. I hope we get to see some of your garden shots Amanda.
