The weather is warming in the Southern Hemisphere and a design blogger girl's mind turns to gardening. I love overgrown, leafy spaces with a space for entertaining, a spot to read the paper, sip tea, perhaps a vege garden, some fruit trees, fabulous colour. Nothing too formal. Something just a little different but always with lovely, large leaves and vigorous, vibrant vines. I've always been a fan of Australian garden designer Rick Eckersley. Rick and partners Scott Leung and Myles Broad of Eckersley Garden Architecture must have read my mind. How perfect are both of these gardens!
