Spring Outings- Cloude Hill Gardens

Some days the weather is just too good to spend inside working, and fresh air and exercise is good for us, so after I had spent most of a recent workday busy on the PC and in the studio, I could not bear it any longer and just had to get out. Moth was home…

Spring Outings – Dandenong Ranges Botanic Gardens

Dandenong Ranges Botanic Gardens, Formerly known as the National Rhododendron Gardens, but it has so much more than just rhododendrons these days.
