The Terrace

When we arrived the garden on the terrace was a mess of elephant ears, callas, trees sown from seed and one very large tree stump.  dsc03697-f-rI wanted to transform the area and make it a little less cluttered and a litte more relaxing. So we went in with the chainsaw, the axe, the mattock, the shovel, the rake, and many hours of hard work.

When it was finally cleared it was time to see what we had on hand. dsc05671-rWe had brought several trailer loads of plants with us from our old home in Melbourne

and as it turned out, the only item we purchased for this area was the tree fern.

It is planted with various ferns, bromeliads, a cycad and an ornamental ginger plant, and we have finished it off with some old hollow logs and a couple of garden ornaments.
