It has to be said that the predominant colour for most of the year in the majority of my garden is green – except for the grassed areas which are most definitely brown for months of the year as we do not use precious water to keep the grass green here ... so when the 'dry' hits, the grass dies off very quickly. The foliage does not change as Autumn approaches and there is no blanket of white snow during our Winter.
Green, green… everywhere there’s green ... ( can you tell I'm a little sick of all the
green????) Well ... I am, but there's really little choice in the large outdoor garden beds.
The Ferny Grove -
green. Plants such as ferns, philodendrons, shrubs and trees which do not flower, palms and my lovely cycads. They are the ones that survive the often harsh conditions and seem to grow despite the poor condition of the soil and the rocky terrain.
The Driveway Garden Beds -
Polyscias fruticosa -Ming Aralia:
Top row: Monstera deliciosa – Swiss Cheese Plant.
Bottom row: Philodendron
Top row: Schefflera arboricola - Dwarf variegated Umbrella Tree
Bottom row: Pedilanthus tithymaloides 'variegata' - Slipper Plant
There's also lots of different types of Palms around the property.
Now to finish ... here's a short video which I've appropriately named "Green, Green ... Everywhere Is Green." (There is sound ... so if you wish to listen to the accompanying music, turn on your speakers!)
