Here are a few pics that i have taken of my garden. I have tried to place plants in ways for maximum view.I love lupins, their colours and scents fill the air along with their height.

Lovely photos, Patty! :D I agree with Marrion about your first shot - the colours harmonise well (though I'm sure I should know what the lemon flower is, but just can't find the name in my brain... please - what is it?)

But I am also stumped with how you got the perspective in the last shot - long lens with Photoshopping, or mirrors... :lol: The lupins look fantastic. And, as for your view - sensational! Your garden (from these pics) looks like I could walk around it for ages :D

I didn't think the buds looked right.

I think you are right, Pam :-? the buds do look like Evening Primrose buds but the flower colour is unusual, mine are either, white, bright yellow or the pink Evening Primrose

Thankyou :Marion,Luzy,Sunraysial and Pam.Your comments were nice to here. I wasn't sure of the yellow plant either luzy.I thought it may have been a member of the rosa family, but found out it might well be an Evening Primrose (Oenothera Biennis).Still not sure.The colours do work well together.
Sunraysia, the view is about to change,as Gunns has bought the property next to us.I'm afraid it will be full of gum trees soon.But don't let me turn you off from coming back,lol.
Luzy, the shot of lupins with the valley was just taken with a normal digital camera.I lined up with the gum tree beside me and snapped.Framed in photoimpression and there it is.Nothing fancy. And yes my garden is lovely to walk around in, a lot of work at times.An acre of plants and growing.I call it Blooming Flowers.

How disappointing for you, Patty - a classic case of not being able to choose your neighbours, I guess! :(
