tripping about................

Finally some more pics from my travels during the holidays............I got to go to quite a few open gardens which I LOVE...........the Southern Highlands is another world compared to the area I live..........
(private open garden)

some flowers....


Red Cow Farm at Suttons Forest open 8 months of the year............I love this garden I have been before - even the family enjoyed it..............definitely worth the trip...........

Views from Illawarra Fly, and Saddleback Mountain lookout also Kiama Blowhole

Another private open garden..........

on the weekend I got to go to Mayfield Garden Oberon...............a very young garden but massive and very impressive.............you need hours to go thru this garden....and good shoes.......it is open again this weekend is anyone is in the area...........definitely worth the trip.............still constructing some of the water areas...........but plans are a world class garden and it is heading there..........and open much more with nursery, cafe, etc............I will definitely be going back to this garden
