Confetti Gardens at Mount Colah

On Saturday we went to visit an open garden, ‘Confetti Gardens’ at Mount Colah.  The owner (and gardener) Claire, had spent 11 years transforming a bare piece of land with some bushrocks and an electricity pylon at the rear, into a beautiful meandering garden, jampacked with Australian native plants, trees, flowering shrubs and a greenhouse, compost area and fishpond complete with some beautiful fish.

Here are some of the photos I took there.  I will post more later.  I felt really inspired by her efforts and dedicaton.
