A fantastic garden visit today overlooking down on the Campaspe River. A walk along the river with interaction with the farm animals & birds just added to our visit. To finish we enjoyed a Devonshire tea with homemade scones & fig tart in amongst the roses. This garden was well worth a visit, in fact I intend to return to see the roses at their best. Well done to the owners.
