yesterday a few of us gathered there to learn something of the history of the garden and the woman.
none of us took a camera.... so today i went back to do a few photos.
Unfortunately i choose high noon, which made it hard for my poor olde camera, and has made
too many shots too light.It was a very very sunny day.
sadly i am not clever enough to rearrange that bad lighting, so i will simply put the pics
up as a memory to a lovely suburban garden, a pleasant day out
and an interesting woman ...Lillian Frazer, whose garden is only a few blocks from mine
double click the photos to enlarge.
seeing as i dont know the names of most of the plants....i have left them unnamed.!!
the shed at the entrance to the garden
old man banksia tree
close up of the banksia trunk
a so called pom pom tree.....which obviously fascinates me!!
a lady working in the garden took me aside to show me this plant. she does not know its name.
she says it is rare in australia. it has a star shaped leaf and a star shaped flower.
