Getting excited to see Stonefields in the flesh. Less than a month now until my visit for the open garden. I was going to post a photo from the book I have been rereading but then I saw this photo on Paul’s feed and really not much beats dogs with topiary so in true Bangay style here is a puppy inside a topiary ball 📷@paulbangay #Stonefields#paulbangay#topiary
It’s such a bittersweet moment to realize my last wedding of the 2018 season is coming up...
Wedding 61/61. That’s 61 beautiful couples, 61 different bouquets and 30 different venues!
The best part? We kicked off the season at @stonefields_estate in May and now we’re ending the season there on Saturday!
We were lucky enough to share SIX magical days with them this year and we can’t wait to celebrate Kels + Jeremy! Two days!
Let’s throw it back a bit to that sign I made for @vickiemax wedding at @stonefields_estate this past June. I LOVE being a part of my clients wedding days, especially when they make my work look this good beside some of @wearepollennation’s amazing florals. V & G thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be part of your special day. Congratulations. .

It’s amazing to think that as NY gets colder with each day that passes and the only natural color we have are the leaves changing, in the Southern Hemisphere, Spring has well and truly arrived, and this is most evident at Stonefields, the private garden of international garden designer @paulbangay
Stonefields will be open to the public the weekend of 17 and 18 November to benefit the Kitchen Garden Foundation @sakgf which helps children form positive food habits for life.

Are you ready to take your Yoga beyond Asana?
Join Kara-Leah for a half-day workshop where we will: • Discuss the essential understandings of Tantra Yoga;
• Explore how to apply these understandings to your ordinary life;
• Learn a daily Tantra Yoga practice you can do anywhere, anyhow, in less than 11 minutes; and

Kara-Leah was initiated into the Kashmir Shaivism Tantra Yoga Lineage in 2010. The core practice she was taught is now her daily practice, and she’s on her way to 1000 Days in a row of that practice. A few months ago, she was told that now is the time to begin to teach this practice.
This is the beginning of sharing this practice..... To book go to link in bio for website. #tantra#liveafullandpotentlife#beyondasana#yoga#community#omyogastudio#stonefields#theyogaconnectionnz
3 years ago I travelled across the world to Australia to meet my landscaping icon @paulbangay .This is his latest post of Stonefields his country residence just outside Melbourne.I could stare at this photo for the rest of my life.It brings up so many memories.I remember slowly driving down the driveway trying to take it all in.The sound of crushed gravel .My first glimpse of the clipped hedges and the garden vista as it unfolded.Its a moment in time I’ll never forget.The following day I met Paul in his studio and he took me on a private tour of Stonefields after which I got to spend the next few days popping in and out the garden as I was staying in the cottage on the property.To see the garden at different times of the day was also something really special.I got to spend time with Tim the head gardener who manages the entire garden with one assistant ! I carried all my Paul Bangay books with me to Australia and Paul kindly signed them .I also had my sketch pad and sat with him on the verandah chatting about my new home which was under construction at the time and my new garden design which was more important to me than the house .I remember him picking up a pencil and drawing one of his ideas onto my drawing.It was a defining moment in my life.I am eternally grateful for the time I spent with him at Stonefields.As a gift I gave him the Stellenberg book @stellenberggardens to show him that we too have remarkable gardens in South Africa and wrote him a note saying that he should visit.He inturn gave me a copy of his latest book.It was undoubtedly a trip I’ll never forget with memories I’ll cherish forever.Dream big.Anythings possible. #paulbangay#stonefields#australia#landscaping#formalgardens#landscaper#inspiration#design#inspired
