Do you like my new header photo? I kind of like logging on just to have a look at it. Do you think anyone believes it is my actual garden? Maybe international readers who don't know that inner city Melbourne doesn't have thatched cottages! What I wouldn't do for a garden like this. I can appreciate a modern, water concious, minimalist or native garden but I am a complete romantic sucker for a cottage garden. I know it's cliche'd as far as gardens go but I just can't help myself. There is something Green Gables, with a touch of fairy about a cottage garden.
