Garden Shows on the Telly
There's a great new show on the TV at the moment about Gardens around the world.
So far I've watched two of them and have come away with some real inspiration. Surprisingly the second week it was about Australian and New Zealand gardens which was a pleasant surprise. While the first week was about Gardens in Mexico and South America.
Now I want to do all sorts of things and I can hear howls of objection just thinking about it. My "thing" at the moment is about colour and texture. We have a brick wall which I want to put wire on for a grape vine but after seeing the Mexican gardens I have a real desire to paint it cobalt or magenta! Luckily its way up the back of the garden behind the garage, but i do think the grape vine and banana trees would look wonderful against a cobalt wall!
Something like this.....I wish Anyway I suppose my point is that green against an bright colourful backdrop is simply divine. Here is a pic of the wall now. Give me a couple of months and i'll take another pic. What do you think cobalt or pink!
Let me know I love feedback!!!
