We can sing a rainbow

Over the weekend we visited a wonderful local garden displaying the diversity of plants that thrive in the subtropics. "Coucals of Mt Crosby" is a private garden set on 2 acres. It is owned by Jim and Jan Flanigan who designed, built and maintain the garden surrounding their family home. The garden is a feast for the senses with pathways linking an ever-changing garden tapestry in all the colours of the rainbow.  If you would like to see more of the garden they have their own website:  http://www.coucalsgarden.com/index.htm
By the way, a coucal is a pheasant-like bird that is relatively common in this area.

  6. What a great idea! I enlarged every mosaic and very charming for me is the pink and purple one, of course my favorite colours. I looked also where you live, because I guessed it must be where it is very hot.

  8. Thanks everyone for your comments. I had fun putting the mosaics together. Yes Anja, it can get fairly hot here but for most of the year the weather is just right. We are very fortunate.

  9. Any idea what the red flowered vriesea bromeliad is? I'm pretty sure its one of my unidentified ones.

  10. I used to sing this song with my Kindergarten classes often. I had drawn pictures to illustrate it. Your mosaics are spectacular!

  11. Steve, my guess is Vriesea triligulata, but not sure.

  12. Hi! Lovely mosaics. I am trying to figure things out here. Is Missy a Terrier? My Pomeranian loves to assist in posting while Clifford and Goldee manages the tilling of the soil in the garden. I started my blog being Goldee... :)

  13. You're correct One. Missy is a Silky Terrier. The blog began as hers, just as the garden belongs to her. Ros seems to have taken over more & more lately but still signs on as Missy.
