Gardivalia #3

Four more gardens today – all different, all in Willow Grove, all delightful.

Jelyn Views is four acres of English type beds, deciduous trees, eye-drawing water features and panoramic views. Jesse and Linda have created their own magnificent garden haven.

John and Dee’s garden is testament to what can be achieved even while living a busy lifestyle. Free range chooks, organic vegetables, fruit trees, a re-vegetated bush block, indigenous species and a Lavender bed inspired by a trip to France.

Yuruga is principally a cottage style garden with colour themed beds. Bruce and Chris have created a garden that has a new delight around every corner.

Bob and Alene’s garden, Tanjadale, is a wandering waterwise garden with a clever combination of eye-catching beds and broad sweeping vistas. Inspirational settings for an artist.

More soon.

More pictures of these gardens and others on Gouldiae’s Galleries – click on folder ‘7 – Gardivalia’.

Most gardens will be open again this coming weekend – go to the Gardivalia website for details.


  1. It's interesting to see the different gardens and be inspired by something someone else has created. Maybe I'll be able to do some weeding later!

  2. Yes indeed HW,
    I even came home from one of my photographic sessions and THOUGHT about mowing my lawns!
    No, really some of the people and their stories behind their gardens are really inspirational.
