Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy - P. Tchaikovsky

Various gardens surround Rosewood. Here we are in the East Garden.

In the east we have a beautiful setting for reflection called "The Thinking Pond". This pond with goldfish contains many interesting water plants. Sitting on the bench beside the pond you will be under a Eucalyptus tree. Further along an arbour is drenched in the intertwinings of two kiwi vines which bear fruit each year. Speaking of fruit, beyond the picket fence we have an orchard and fruit garden giving us apples, plums, pears, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. All of these fruits are used to make pies, preserves, conserves, and daquiris.

The north east side of the gardens contain many herb plants which are used for the delicious breakfasts each morning, special sauces, chutneys and relishes.

Part of the east garden in early spring. Heathers, daffodils, lillies, Forget-me-nots, and Daphne flourish in the bright clear morning sunlight. Soon the swallows will arrive to add their airobatics to the skyline. east03.jpg (172157 bytes)
The west garden features a multitude of flowers arranged in a classic "English Country Garden" with large rose bushes draped over the arbours. To take a look at the west garden please click here. To see the north-west arbour laden with a Clematis plant click here.

Along the oceanside of the house is a long deck with large flower pots. Guests can relax, take in the ocean air, watch hummingbirds or walk among the terraced gardens. Click here to see the beautiful potted flowers along the front decks.
