Garden inspiration

With spring on our doorstep (it's still a bit chilly) and an empty garden ready for planting, I'm reading tons of gardening books for ideas.  I also recently visited the garden show at Garden World in Northern Johannesburg.  Here is what inspired me...



Yes - these proteas are real

...and I bought this beautiful oversized pot for my garden


  1. Hi Alison,

    Thanks for sharing - these are such awesome ideas and now I have an idea for an 'art piece' I bought in December with the tin cups.

    Shall have to get cracking on it soon.

    Have a wonderful day

  2. Thanks for the feedback Wendy! Please share the cup idea once you've done it - I'd love to see it (I'm also going to try it as soon as I get the time)

  3. Hey my friend, I LOVE the gumboots idea ... I think I need to go and buy a pair at PnP and do that in my garden.

    The proteas are gorgeous!!!
