Inspired by.... Lambley Nursery

The Lambley Gardens and Nursery are located a few minutes drive west of Creswick in central Victoria.  I visited on a hot, hot Autumn day, but stepping into this beautiful green oasis set within a landscape of dry windswept plains was instantly refreshing. The temperature seemed at least a few degrees cooler.

I think a sedum flower textile design will have to go on my to-do list.....

The Dry Garden is a low-water use garden, surrounded with traditional English hedging.


The old brick and stone farmhouse.

The vegetable garden.

 A richly coloured clematis.

Vibrant zinnias planted in raised garden beds. 

The cutting garden.

I love delphiniums but so do the rabbits in my garden. 
Hopefully I will have better luck growing these next year.....

The Lambley Gardens and Nursery are the work of David Glenn and the artist Criss Canning. An inspiring place to visit!
