Our group really enjoyed visiting a town garden. This garden was packed with surprises. As we approached we could see that Carol has fully utilised her nature strip.
Carol has collected many succulents, ...
... orchids and bromeliads.
Birds Nest Fern has been growing here for many years. This fern is native to the rainforest around Bellingen.
(Urtica dioica) tea. Carol grows the nettles in a pot to prevent this invasive plant becoming a weed.
One of Carol's many orchids thriving in the semi-shade.
This golden day lily loved its sunny northern position.
In this pic you can see an aloe, a rose and a native banksia all growing happily in Carol's front yard. She has also extensively planted her nature strips outside her fences.
Irises grow by the pool with a crucifix orchid in the foreground. We thinks these are Lousiana Iris.
Calla Lilies make an easy care groundcover, easily contained in a town garden.
Carol shared her years of gardening experience.
A very, large Magnolia (not Magnolia grandiflora) provided shade. On the left is a mature Frangipani still to come into leaf. Click on all pics to enlarge.
