Jardine’s – Harcourt North

DSCN2631

Jardine’s is the third of this series of gardens I visited on the 4th of November 2013.

The granite house was built in 1994 and is surrounded by extensive grounds. Parts of the garden are Japanese inspired:

whilst other sections reflect European garden tradition.

There is a very Australian touch with a small carving of a magpie standing on a post welcoming visitors to the garden.

  1. Lovely photos Margaret. I so enjoy folks sharing the scenery in other parts of the world, so varied from the scrubby landscape – sand and rock soil we have here. We see a lot of metal sculpture in this area, which is beautiful nestled in the red dirt, prairie grasses and succulents. I should do a blog post on this sometime… just for you!

  2. Yes, Lori, I would love to see a blog post featuring the metal sculpture nestled in the red dirt among the prairie grasses and succulents.
    The Harcourt Valley and Mt. Alexander is granite country with gravelly granite soils which is great for growing apples.
    The metal sculpture in this garden moves in the breeze so it is definitely attention grabbing.
