Mum and I had a lovely day out on Monday. We went to visit Lavandula lavender farm. They have gorgeous shady gardens and a very nice cafe with seating in the shade of a grove of Ash trees. We had lunch watching the antics of a couple of geese families with a host of youngsters.
Shade trees are so important in an Aussie garden and those we planted at our old house are looking fantastic now. We get to admire the ornamental pears at the front as we drive past each day. Now it has us thinking about planting some more here at this house. We do have a fabulous big tree to the West of the house and it's perfect for keeping the sun from the back door. There is several scattered around our half acre garden but I think next Winter we will plant a few more.
