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.

DSCN2539 The distance stretches out before me

Rolling away to far hills,

Faint puffs of cloud hang still in the sky.

It can be tough living up on this ridge being buffeted by the four winds

Exposed to heat and snow,

Yet, I envy those who drink in this view each day.
