We spent yesterday in the front garden, today we're exploring the back garden, starting with this striking eucalyptus in June...
And from a slightly different perspective, in August.
When I visited in May the pond was undergoing a little repair—thus no photos. In June; it was looking fantastic
August and everything is a little bigger, more mature...
A slight jump back in time now, to June. Note the Alstroemeria 'Indian Summer' just to the left of the pond.
And now, in August, it's larger...
A detail shot.
The Agave ovatifolia and Leucadendron argenteum in May.
And in August...
A corner of the garden, in August.
I was especially enamored with this vignette and took a few photos, this one in June.
The Caesalpinia gilliesii was blooming in June...
And still going in August.
In May the stones of the crevice garden were still visible.
By June they were nowhere to be seen...
Agave parrasana 'Meat Claw', in August.
Abutilon 'Victor Reiter', if my memory is correct (August).
The colocasia is lush, in August.
And the gunnera is huge!
In May the trachycarpus were in bloom.
June brought Magnolia blooms, sadly I'm drawing a blank on which one this is.
The pathway to where we started in the back garden is narrowing in June.
Variegated daphniphyllum, June
And the non-variegated version, June.
I'll end this year's coverage (last year's? These photos were taken in 2019) with luxurious brugmansia blooms, in June. I hope jumping around from May to June to August wasn't too distracting.
