28. Manicured gardens


Given the state of my own wild gardens you would wonder at manicured gardens being among my favourite things.  When it comes to garden displays it is hard to pass by Canberra's Floriade for a colourful photo.

  1. I only ventured around Floriade once, a few years back, and it was during the drought. I was bitterly disappointed. Much prefer a real garden to wander through.

    1. With Floriade you have to get your timing right, get there when the display is at its best which of course is a different time every year depending on the weather. It can be very disappointing if you go too early or too late.

      That said, I too prefer a real garden but none of them turn on quite the same photographic spectactular.

  2. It is a magical garden but for only a short time

Gundagai exploring

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
