This is one very special property - acreage, with sweeps of lawn and arbors that lead you to explore down to the river - with beautiful mature trees framing the whole picture.
Hydroponics, a giant chook run that I would be happy to call home, raised wicking beds for veg and lots of colourful decorative plants to please the eye.
Karla has a distinctly artistic way of grouping plants to show off colour and texture to perfection, with lots of clever art work dotted amongst the foliage. Beautiful, just beautiful.
Karla does have the advantage over most of us. She has an incredibly versatile gardening aide called the "Bruce". Not sure what sort of fuel The Bruce works on but it's worth every penny for the amount of work this aide produces when you aim it in the right direction and give it instructions.
Some photos from our glorious morning visiting the garden of Karla, Bruce and their family.
The setting with fire for making damper.

Loved it as well. Have you thought about naming the creek down the back "The Ross"? You could do a hellishly cute sign and most people would miss the point of the little joke.
Thanks for having us when ya running on 3 cylinders darl.
Took me 20 seconds, but got it eventually! x
And I've entirely missed the point :-\ Clue?
Ross River fever - Karla is recovering.
and so doing a garden visit to that standard was pretty darn spectacular. It was my little way of letting her know that I recognised that fact.
I get the 3 cylinders, it was the river and now with Lissa's help, I get that too. Pheww!
Having had it, I can empathise.
