Tadpole Creek Garden

Today was a glorious spring day here in Margaret River and thanks to the hospitality of keen gardener Paula Cristoffanini we had somewhere to enjoy the afternoon.

Paula opened her garden “Tadpole Creek Garden” to the public today as a means to raise some funds for local cancer charity River Angels.

What was once a paddock is now a wonderful garden…and in such a short time. Paula has chosen plants that flower with vibrant colours in the yellow, orange and red palate with highlights of purple. Her Mediterranean style garden features plants that are water-wise and natives that need little care but are also happy to the trimmed and shaped.  Although not a lot of blooms were on display today you could feel spring was in the air and it showed how a well designed garden still has so much to offer in any season.

Another feature of the garden was Paula’s artistic flare in producing works of garden art that bring joy and creativity to the landscape.

Take a look at what we saw today!  Paula was there to give us all the information on her garden and share as much of her knowledge as possible.

Entry to the garden is down a lovely driveway, weaving its way to where the garden opens up into view.

Then it was time to explore. The birds were out enjoying the day as well.

Thank you to Paula for making her beautiful garden available for the public to view and we look forward to visiting again.
