Many years ago we saw the gardens at Cranbourne, shortly after it first opened to the public. We thought it was ok and had potential. And boy did it have potential. It is now officially fabulous. I won't say they are all Australian plants as I can't confirm that, but let us say mostly Australian plants. We arrived and found a car space quickly enough. We had some lunch at the cafe before setting forth.
I think these are Sheoaks. Just for once, I will still my fingers and let the pictures tell most of the story. Little Jo seemed to enjoy herself. Part 2 soon.
