  1. Somehow I’d expect a southern hemisphere spring to look different from ours in the north but this lovely scene looks very familiar. Autumn’s just settling in here.

    1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. I really like this shot, Liz. Pass on my compliments to Nigel. 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.

    1. 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.
