green

The view outside my study window.
The rest of the rooms in this house (apart from one bedroom, oh and the laundry) have floor to ceiling windows and look out over a sublime view for many many miles. My study faces the other way and looks at the cliff stretching above the house.

There are two callistemons planted in the garden bed there, and it wasn’t until this week when the startling greenness caught my eye after a heavy bout of rain, that I realised one of them has weeping foliage.

There is also a plague of fishbone ferns. But their removal is a low priority at the moment, and they do photograph nicely with the sun shining through their fronds.

Oh such greeny greeness! My garden and the bush round here seems to be a little confused. it's Autumn, but the rain has bought on a flush of green and a few blooms.

All the green! My garden/yard is the same way.

I love the blog remodeling.

Green seems to be as oxygen to me of late, so thanks for the breath of fresh, green air!

Lovely blog.

How nice to live with a view.
Is the callistemon weeping naturally or is something wrong with it?
Nice pictures. Glad you got the one of the fern before it goes.

Kim said...

are you growing hemp?

Kidding.

The blue suits you. I like it very much.

You have your own study? Wow --

I am enjoying the robin's-egg blue! Lovely, calm, pretty pretty pretty.

And so GREEN! And we are too, effective yesterday; we've had April Showers and it's looking downright Ireland-ish around here. Grass Green, Froggy Green; Verdant, even.

Gorgeous - I think I can smell those leaves from here.

such a pretty blue... Ferns are a plus on my dream property. There is a valley of ferns amidst a forest of cedars that go whoosh whoosh so gently in the breeze.

BabelBabe said...

digging the blue - very restful.

Suse said...

Doubleknot, the weeping style is natural. I haven't made it sad.

Kim said...

Hey Suse - what is your email address?

Elizabeth said...

Forget the greenery and the blue, this is all about biscuits!
I think you and Jane should send me the TimTam's and M&S biscuits - as a totally impartial judge! I have no history with either one. Just sayin'

This is the book I was thinking about for your son - unfortunately it is about a superhuman not a mystery or crime... As you will see it is written by a young Australian guy... It sounds like it will be a good read - we have had some expression of interest in it already... Hope you find what you are looking for... I will still have a hunt around at work...
