Pipe dream

This award-winning show garden by Melbourne-based Alison Douglas Design is just the inspiration I need for that awkward spot at the end of my garden. I just have to explain to my husband why I need to buy a large concrete culvert pipe.

PIPE DREAM is a hidden oasis in our busy city designed as an antidote to our epidemic of being time poor. The meditation moon gate/day bed, reflective water feature and fire pit are all created from concrete pipes. Concrete was chosen as a feature material to reference the ‘concrete jungle’ we inhabit ... Pipe Dream is a place to stop, meditate, reflect and breathe. As this is easier said than done one might call it a ‘Pipe Dream’.

Stalking 2

I'm stalking a "little" country getaway in the old gold rush town of Kyneton just outside Melbourne. A "simple shack" surrounded by manicured gardens. Another house that I'd love to see in real life. I'm sure it would be stunning if the photos were more magazine worthy, less wide angle real estate. Copper bath tubs, Edwardian era frills of fretwork and stained glass, wide plank floors and a picket fence. Link here while it lasts.

City garden inspiration

Spring has sprung right into summer in my part of the world. It's going to be a perfect weekend to get serious in my garden. I need a little inspiration for the patio just outside my kitchen and I think I've found just what I need. Love this courtyard garden and patio in Sydney's Woolloomooloo by landscape architects and designers Outdoor Establishments. Alfresco dining, chilling and a great retro and reuse vibe. Don't think I'll need the fire pit and throw just right now but they will be perfect when the summer blast has gone. Love the big square tubs full of Sansevieria out the front too.
