We visited Holehird Gardens in the lake District close to Ambleside it's run by volunteers and boasts the national collection of Hydrangeas in the UK. A delightful place to visit. We came across the place by accident really. It doesn't seem to be widely advertised.

If only this pram could talk. What an interesting tale it might tell. . A number of homes and owners no doubt Have you speculated on the history of some old objects when you see them? No doubt this little pram has given much joy to some little children. We've planted it up with Maidenhair and Violets. We are happy to give it a home in it's retirement Also pictured Camellia Reticulata "Susie O'neill" named I think after the famous Aussie swimmer. The large blooms on these plants certainly brighten our garden in the winter, also a shot of the beautiful town of Tumut NSW taken on a recent holiday. Please click on photo for a larger view.

These delightful parrots are having a ball in our font garden at the moment. They are spending time between a flowering Corkwood tree and a Eucalypt "Summer Red" It's probably the only time I find squawking relaxing. The photos didn't turn out too bad, my camera has a telescopic lense on it but quite often it doesn't focus well. I wouldn't get this close without it
