We are still on holidays and are back in Tweed Heads in norther New South Wales now.
I have taken more photos than I can manage at present but I will include some each day if I think they are interesting enough.
The plant featured here is a frangipani, a very popular plant in the places we visited. Anyway I wonder if anyone can see the frog in this pic.
I don't know the name of this plant but perhaps Laurel will let us know. It is a really pretty little plant with gorgeous shades of blue.
The house and the formal garden are surrounded by tall eaucalypts and they form a truly Australian backdrop. They also provide shelter to many birds and animals and tiny wildflowers.
Laurel & Neal have put in many hours of work building up the poor soil and creating wonderful areas of plantings.
I can tell that this is a labour of love and that although it is beautiful now, there is plenty more planned for the future.
The house is also a delight to see. The verandas provide shelter from the heat and the interior is very inviting with lots of Laurel's needlework on display.
Sadly by the time I went inside my camera decided not to co-0perate so i can only show a couple of examples of her work. I am sure you will agree it is beautiful.
Later I will share some more photos of our trip to Noosaville which is a little further north on the Sunshine coast of Queensland.
