A special visit – part 2 the garden

The views from the balcony of our B&B were gorgeous, looking out over garden and dense bushland, and up into the hills of the Dandenongs, all enveloped in Spring sunshine.  Below we could hear the sounds of running water and guessed it was a stream; we’d crossed a bridge just shortly before arriving at our destination. The first day we arrived was cool but sunny (about 16 degrees – a nice Summer’s day for Anne!) and we explored the various paths leading down from the house, taking the twists and turns from timber to gravel, around trees and garden beds, reveling in the warm sunshine on our faces. Our exploring led us to find not onebut two lovely places to sit and enjoy the surroundings and we imagined warm Summer evenings in these spots.As it’s Spring here, there were lots of plants bloomingpale to brilliant

isolated pockets of bright colour amid the greenery

and pretty blossom, still frothy while new leaves were starting to appear

and we did notice the very large bird feeder at the end of the balcony under the shade of a rhododendron (more on that soon)and various “animals” around the garden, the hare in particular is very cleverly done.It was a good thing we made the most of it that afternoon as the weather turned quite cool and damp for the rest of our stay.  No stitching outdoors, unfortunately.  Maybe next time……

More soon!

  1. Good to have the chance to wander in the garden. Much as we would like to, stitching all day isn’t really sensible!
