Lavender - Wormwood and Rambling Roses.....




An early South Australian cottage now gone to ruin
but the beautiful rambling cottage garden
continues to flourish despite the lack of attention.
I love to drop by here every so often and take a walk
among the rubble and sweet perfume of the place
set amid thickets of olde-world plantings.

If we are lucky, our plants outlive us. You obviously have found such a spot.

I love lavender, but we can't grow it here. I'm wondering if perhaps it could be grown as an annual, though.
Beautiful photos, Dianne. I can see why you like to wander through the old garden.

Gorgeous captures, Dianne! I, too, wonder about the stories that could go with the first shot! The lavender is delightful! Lovely old garden! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!

Excellent, Dianne. Even after the house has returned to nature, the glorious plants are thriving.

J'aime le contraste des couleurs...

Lavender grows around "Our Home By The Bay" due to the influence of our time in Provence - You know all about that, don't you Dianne.

I love the look of "wild" gardens - my own gardens at high altitude can qualify even though I do tend them. Sometimes the plants just have a mind of their own (thank goodness).
