The other day I was felling a bit sorry for myself and how poor me does not really have any flower gardens where I can grow lovely blooms, plant out perennial boarders of plants and grasses and generally have a garden worthy of the Australian Open Garden Scheme.
Then before letting my mind wander down the path of woe is me, I dragged myself back to the reality that is:
a) I do have a bed full of flowering Lavender running the length of our veranda
b) I do have 2 dedicated rose gardens either side of our front steps
c) I do have a shade house full of Bromeliads, Orchids and Ferns
d) I do have plenty of room for planting out gardens but have put off doing this as we are aiming for a new house one day.
e) We may not get a new house for a while and garden beds can be moved and plants transplanted.
So after coming to the realisation that the only thing stopping me from having (more) flower gardens is me and time, I decided to look at what I did have and here is what I found.

I guess sometimes you just have to look a little closer to see the beauty around you as you may be walking past something spectacular without even knowing it. And most importantly focus on what you do have rather than what you don't.
