Second instalment of my trip North.
Not too shabby looking at this during breakfast
at our cabin in the very corner of the caravan
park with the best view and no passing traffic
nothing like being greeted by a prehistoric
reptile, a sleepy lizard
when we hit the gardens
the light was stark but the flowers prolific
I will be posting lots more for
grasshoppers of every type were thick
as flees on a mangy dog,
banging into unsuspecting visitors
from all sides
with the unusually good spring rains
Sturt Desert Peas were flowering in
the entrance area
India Flint and her very appropriate sculpture
for this arid region
of found cattle bones
I have been visiting these gardens since
the time of their planting
it has been a long and arduous process
to establish all the seedlings
Roz Hawker from Queenland
with her sculpture of a
primitive bush tent.
Things were very rudimentary in the early days.
Quandongs or bush peaches, were ripe
in this perfect habitat for them.
There is not much flesh on them
but what there is, is edible
and was a good source of vitamins
for the early settlers
if you enlarge, you will see the red berries
on the green tree in the middle
I wonder who stuck it to the end of this looong post?
I just have so very many photos to share.
