On the way back from Melbourne last week, we stopped in at
the Ballarat Botanical Gardens and what a sight met our eyes!
Even outside the gardens the grass was full of daisies
spring plantations that had been brought into being.
the little statue in the background?
house. The lanterns are like old fashioned gaslights and there
are quite a number of marble statues and bronze busts of all
the Australian prime ministers lining an avenue of very old trees.
Here is a raised semi-circular bed of multi-coloured polyanthus.

How delightful to be surrounded by such colors. The glass house looks very unusual, and quite the contrast to the old fashioned gas lights.ReplyDelete

Never content...I am just never content...I adore our spring and this season spring came on so hot, we never even realized spring had come. Now as we enter the autumn season here, you enter the spring and your lovely images make me long for our spring to once again return for now, not another several months. Ah but we must enjoy each day, each season given, right...yes and we shall, but oh do smell the fragrance of the flowers just once for me and bid them a fond hello from far away~ReplyDelete
