Broughton Hall – November 2021
On Wednesday 10th November 2021, twenty-six club members braved the poor weather and visited the beautiful gardens of Broughton Hall and we weren’t disappointed (see photo over). The glorious colour of this wonderful garden was emphasised by the contrast of the grey sky. Described as a charmed garden, the design and construction with the breathtaking view was most impressive. After a meal at Neerim South Hotel some members continued to Country Farm Perennials where David and Meryl warmly greeted us. The rain stopped long enough for us all to stroll around their magnificent garden, and of course spend some time and money in their nursery.
Cloudehill – March 2021
Blue Lotus Water Gardens
Garden Club visits don’t come much better than this. After morning tea at Noogee we arrived at Blue Lotus on the Warburton Highway near Yarra Junction at about 11.00am and spent 3 hours enjoying 14 acres of Australia’s largest water Garden. There are more than 4km of trails and tracks through a mass of lakes full of thousands of rare Lotus flowers and Water Lillies plus hothouses with tropical and night flowering plants. It is best described by the collection of photos below: —
This was a unique trip organised by Irene and enjoyed by all who attended.
