Autumn’s just settling in here. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Ah, but when the northern hemisphere folks arrived down here they were mainly from the uk and there’s always been this strong desire in Australia and NZ to have English gardens. Not usually on such a scale as the uk, but the Davison family who developed Maple Glen are truly exceptional and their son Rob is continuing to push the boundaries, literally, expanding in all directions with a new network of large ponds. Enjoy your autumn while it lasts! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Just only six months! 😁 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Your time will come 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply How pretty that is! I like the curved beds too, with the path leading off to the bluebells. I’m sure you’re enjoying spring as much as we are over here. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply LOVE Spring!

What I especially like is the fact that he chose to focus on the flowers in the foreground and let the background fade into beautiful swaths of color.

You have me thinking thoughts of spring… 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply We returned to Maple Glen on Sunday because I’d seen their facebook post saying the bluebells would be good then. It was worth it! The blue haze was way more colourful than when we were there a week ago. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
