It’s my favourite time of the year here in my subtropical home … or should that be garden? Autumn is neither too hot or too cold here. We may not have much in the way of spectacular autumn colour but instead the garden continues to grow and thrive. With daytime maximums in the mid 20s (Celsius) and nights only dipping to low teens dare I say it’s almost like a European summer. Living in such a paradise it’s easy to see why my mind is full of garden inspiration. My latest plans are heavily influenced by these two fabulous (and very petite) outdoor spaces by Sydney-based landscape design firm Garden Society. Time to get working in the garden again this weekend.
