Garden - May 2012

This is my continuation of the make-over of my garden. I'm still working around this area and still figuring out what is the best arrangement I can possibly make to make this space neat & beautiful.
And some occasions some of the plants are giving out the best in their blooms - Black Flamingo & Walking Stick Iris.

Above all - its still a lot of maintenance to consider when a plant overgrows or a pruning is required.
Never thought that its going to be a finished job - rather its very much like a constant ongoing work.
And the total standing and watching and looking and admiring takes a more time in decision making.
(in what stays and what gets moved)

All these pictures were taken using a camera phone - so please excuse me for the not-so-good quality.
Planning to take few macro shots of my orchids (if only I can get some new rechargeable batteries soon)


  1. Hi James! Looking good! I love your fern. It looks almost like the fern growing in my garden!

  2. Looks like a lot of hard work; selection, repotting and re-arranging. For this very reason, I try to keep container gardening to a minimum, limited to those that do not require frequent re-potting. Images are relatively good for camera phone.

  3. Hello James, that plant in the first pic next those 'birds' looks like my Billbergia pyramidalis. I love how you stack those foliage plants together. Very attractive! Have a great weekend!!

  4. My garden makeover seems to be a never-ending daily affair, hence I do agree with your statement, "And the total standing and watching and looking and admiring takes a more time in decision making"!

    Let's say that we are painting a different picture every day.

  5. Actually you are luckier than I am because you are living in your house and can garden everyday. If you are like me living in a condo except for some weekends when i'm in the province, you will miss that fun. And we are the same, as i utilize also those discarded cans as pots. It gives a lot of iron to plants when they are already rusty.

  6. Yes I fully agree with you aranging of plants is never ending process.Shots are quite good.I always love to read your post and blog it is cooling for sour eyes

  7. Thanks everyone for your lovely comments.
    Appreciate it very much.

  8. Like the creative ideas with the can and shelves! I think I should save some of our olive oil can.

    1. Glad that you like it - remember to make some holes at the bottom of the cans when planting.

  9. You got a wonderful collection, James. Reminds me of my garden of yesteryears when our plants were aplenty too. I'm smitten with the eye-catching purplish-blue foliage plant as seen in the last two images... what's its ID, please?

    1. Its known as Purple Queen - a tradescantia species

  10. Thanks for sharing such kind of nice and wonderful collection......again garden makeovers brisbane please visit this and take more information.
