Jewel box garden

Formal hedges, luscious green. Like cut and polished precious emeralds. Sparkling pool, stone and tile. Manicured loveliness in suburban Hurstville, Sydney. A magnificent urban oasis by foremost Australian landscape designer Paul Bangay.

Summer house

Leaves rustle in a wind on the turn. Hot days end with just a hint of chill. Sweat cools bringing goosebumps. Fruit has fallen. Flowers are overblown and nod their heads in the knowledge that summer is done, that colder days are coming. Just enough time to gather together a few more memories to keep the old summer house company in the dark of winter. Soon it will be closed. Soon it will sleep. We turn our backs and retreat to the main house. Down at the end of the garden path will be a promise of things to come, of the cycle of life, of next year. Memories to keep us company in the dark of winter.

Perhaps I should have written this a month or two ago. Perhaps winter has already darkened your windows. Just a summer house memory to keep you warm. For sale here.

Punta or getting to the point

Stone and drifts of flowers. Wood and water. Formal and casual. Substantial walls and willowing drapes. The stone vernacular of Uruguayan architecture floats on flowers, touches the earth and provides a stylish hearth and home. Martin Gómez and his architectural studio address the site, caress the landscape and reach inwards to create the perfect home. La Pedrera, La Barra, Punta del Este, Uruguay. (You can see our original post on Martin Gómez Arquitectos here.)

A leafy lovely

  

I couldn't go today without one more fabulous garden by Eckersley Garden Architecture. How fabulous to sit and sip tea in the morning sun, share a communal platter of food in the dappled shade. Lush and lovely, relaxed and just perfect.

Garden tales

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!
