Umbrellas and Tranquility

Two things I love about Mum's garden. One is this lovely spot. I find it really tranquil and the levels are so pretty. I took this photo on the one rainy day here, which added to the loveliness in my mind.

Secondly, I love her creative use of 'shade'. Adelaide is hot, hot, hot. You need to give some more tender plants a bit of help during the midday sun. And this is what this hilarious contraption is for!

Not many days left in Adelaide before I have to return to Melbourne. Going to make the most of it (and the heatwave on the way)
