The garden is has an interesting layout with many different levels, with stone steps and paths that lead from one area to another
And many sculptural points of interest
The boundary hedge of conifers is well established and trimmed into flat pointed leaf shapes, not unlike the leaves of many of the succulents featured.
This section reminds me of the tentacles of an octopus
The contrast of scale, shape and colour create great visual interest
What is a birthday without cake?
I made lots of little mud cup cakes to resemble small potted succulents.
Once the formalities were over it was time to taste test and view the garden.
This variety is on my wish list. At the moment it is being protected until it is established.
And maybe this one, the deep burgundy edges are very eye catching.
So much to see and admire.
