Yellow beauties
This deceptively modest pairing—a buttery yellow rose known as Charlotte creating a background for a rare hybrid variegated cream and yellow lupin—had visitors stopping to soak in the beauty at the coastal garden of Linda and Glen Pollitt. There's something mesmerizing about this combination, a testament to simplicity in this remarkably varied garden, which includes a woodland area, veggie beds, highly formalized ornamental areas, a huge number of outstanding flowers and shrubs, an herb garden and a remarkably natural-seeming transition to the beach out front, all fit onto less than one acre.
