Vicki and Bruce Jones were the hosts of yesterday's garden day -- an event held on the last Thursday of every month. Vicki and Bruce's cattle property is located about half an hour's drive south-west of Mitchell.
It was only five years ago that Vicki and Bruce created their garden, yet since that time they've suffered the effects of drought and a dust storm In addition, their entire garden was flooded when a nearby creek overflowed. Fortunately their home is elevated.
Green lawns, roses, hippeastrums, iris, petunias, geraniums and many other flowering plants and shrubs make up the garden, and most are in full bloom. Consequently, the garden is filled with colour and interest.
The day was hot (over 3o°C) so the shade beneath the house made a perfect place for morning tea and conversation.
Thank you Vicky and Bruce for your warm hospitality, and also for sharing your beautiful garden with us.
