Warrawong, a Country Garden

DSCN4392

Here is another garden of the HEDGE (Horticultural Endeavours Demonstrating Gardening Enthusiasm) to delight you. It is certainly warming revisiting these photographs of Warrawong on a frigid winter’s night when snow has been falling in the nearby town of Daylesford up on the Great Dividing Range.

These photographs were taken last November.

  1. What an interesting place, thanks for the tour.

    • I am glad you enjoyed the tour, Susan. The gardener is also an artist. Her studio is situated in the garden and I enjoyed viewing her workspace.

  2. Well this looks much warmer than the frozen ice on the windshield post that I read first! Thank you for the lovely tour. I especially like finding interesting statues/oddities in people’s gardens. Ponds are always lovely too, especially in the heat of summer when they attract the birds and frogs. 🙂

    • Jane, With recent abundant rains, I can imagine the frogs around the pond at Warrawong will be croaking very happily.
