OMG, I love the pictures you taken in such a beautiful place. The wall is impressive. I think you and your wife enjoyed so much in the gardens. Thank you so much for sharing them with us. :happy_purple:
Nice creation with one of them.

Given that spring is flushing my garden with so much colour right now, I'll use this thread to post a few more photos from the bunch I took this morning.

Top to bottom -
- an unknown white, multi flowered orchid that has flowered for the first time
- an 8 metre tall Aussie native tree called hymenosporum flavum or more commonly a 'native frangipani'
- a Grevillea Molly - the flower is about the size of my hand
- a Callistemon Tangerine Dream which has just produced its first flower for me and it is a bit of a surprise, because a few weeks back the top third of the bush was stripped bare overnight by caterpillars.

Very nice photos, OMG. Your garden must require a lot of attention. Beautiful results, though, make it worthwhile.
