Vicki’s garden is one of my favourites; the garden is divided into three courtyards, each with their own feel and personality. Many of the plants have come from her mother’s garden and have a special meaning.
The large courtyard can be seen from the main rooms of the house, and during summer visitors are drawn to the garden by the bright colours of the bougainvillaea and climbing rose. This garden is designed with relaxed entertaining in mind, the two large outdoor settings in constant use for family gatherings and makeshift potting table.
This is a cheerful garden that is constantly changing; the rose and bougainvillaea remain, however every few years the perennials change giving a whole new look to the garden and keeping me on my toes. The two smaller courtyards are designed with a gentle flow – cool greens and grey and provide somewhere to unwind and relax and enjoy the fragrance of the Gardenia and the texture of the many varieties of Euphorbia featured in this part of the garden.
