This is the view from the Beasts Kitchen window. I had to run out and take the pic when the rain stopped for 2 minutes, the light was terrible and my phone camera was fighting me all the way.

What we have is a mix of golden and black bamboo , hibiscus , an olive tree at top right , a couple of standing stones , I don't know what the thing is bottom left , and there is an acacia and a ginkgo you cant see lurking up round the standing stones , this is all bedded in a layer of slate chips.

Designed and installed by Mr C. Its lush , awash with different texture and movement.

What is really cool is I have my own standing stone 6 ft obelisk (which you cant see because of the greenery) and on the other side of the garden is the forest of railway sleepers , planted with more bamboo , the topiary dolphin , plus another olive and a large lump of pink granite (The Barbie Stone) . Ideal for picnics , nekkid full moon dancing or sacrificing virgins.
We have done that side before :-)

The thing bottom left looks to be a NZ flax (Phormium).

It looks like a good place for a flasher to hide as well.

It's not very "English Country Garden" is it Beast?

Or has the south coast been globally warmed to the point where roses and hollyhocks won't grown any more?

Lippy its Beast's garden of excotic delights :-)

I may be going out on a limb but I'm convinced that bush is you in camouflage with bits of foliage taped to your body.

Frobisher said...

I can't see any stratigically placed "dog logs" anywhere. And where is flowerpot brimming with fag butts??? and the broken deck chair?? The gleaming water fountain where birds used to concuss themselves??? Edina and Patsy the chickens???

Pink Drama said...

barbie stone? whatever!! i've seen proof you go outisde during the full moon and dance nekkid!! i'm now going blind b/c of it.

but all you need to finish up is a lovely little bench perfect for reading. or for afternoon trysts.

curse you, more southerly than me lattitude man! (gnawing flesh in envy) those are WONDERFUL. C did a great job of planning. how in hell do you keep the chips free of crap though?

you DO need a place for the boids to drink and play, though.

Mr F I have had scant few visits from the hounds of hell , so I have cleared all the dog logs. If you remember someone who shall remain nameless threw my fag butt pot away , the chickens are no more , having been released to the wild , and the water feature is glistening just out of shot , waiting to lure unwary young birds

Benches are for girls , the Beast has deck chairs. Everyone is out dancing nekkid on a full moon round here pinky , its the law

Flaunts sub tropical succulents at First Nations.
A soft broom takes all the crap off the chips , but they are hell on earth if the dogs do a soft one on them....yuk.
The little feathered monsters frollick in the water feature (which you cant see in the pic )and cavort on the barbie stone
