Last night we saw the strikingly beautiful La Grande Bellezza at the Open Air Cinema (check out the trailer here). Before the show we took a wander through the Royal Botanic Gardens. The garden is set on Sydney harbour and is always a nice spot for a picnic. This particular evening the flora was glowing pink, red and orange and I was reminded how charming this spot is.

I dream sometimes of having my own gardening show, wouldn’t that be cool? One of the shows I’m inspired by is the BBC’s The Edible Garden. In this program, horticulturalist, journalist and author Alys Fowler attempts to live a more sustainable life by transforming her Victorian terrace backyard into a beautiful edible garden. She delivers growing tips, recipes and interviews with other likeminded gardeners.
My ideal garden would be one like Alys’s where almost everything is edible, with flowers and foliage for cutting filling up the spaces in between. Her wild design is also a much admired aesthetic. Check out episode one of The Edible Garden below.
