I love this typical old Australian homestead surrounded by a rambling country garden … you see a lot of farmhouses/gardens like this in rural Australia. photos by michael wee for country style au ‘Clair Matin’ shrub rose xx debra via homelife
Pretty breezeway - more than just a walkway - it is its own outdoor area. You could do something in that area that is different from the rest of the yard (like the gravel patios that I like but can't find a place to use). like the white lattice work
Open Gardens Australia - Curraweena. A pretty cottage style garden enhances this historic cottage beneath a framework of established trees. Gravel paths wind past massed informal plantings of lavender , salvias irises and roses offset by formal hedging,sculptures and well-placed seating.
