The Blue Mountains and Mt Tomah Part 1

When we were in Sydney a short time ago we confessed to each other that we had never been to the Blue Mountains. So we hired a car and off for the day.

In our wanderings we happened upon the Mt Tomah cool climate Botanical Gardens. Couldn't have been better if I'd planned it and Ian, being as wonderful as ever, didn't mind the stroll around to stretch his legs.

Below: More garden beds....these are fascinating to me but perhaps don't hold everyones' attention

Below: Even more garden beds ...I love the raised stone beds and would love to have a go at this one day.
