Mount Wilson Gates 6

A nice metal gate is a very classy I reckon.  What is the purpose of a gate I wonder, to keep people out or invite people in?

This is Nooroo. Like many of the gardens it is open to the public,  It's famous for its Wisteria collection but I really like the camellia hedge near the gate.

Some of the gates are more humble, but how majestic is that tree.

Ooo some of these gardens are posh.  They must need an army of gardeners to keep things clipped and tidy.

We are strolling down Church Lane.  The gardens nestle among lush native rainforest where there are tall tree ferns like the ones behind this gate.  That's Church Lane below, I love the rock walls.

It was a glorious Autumn day so we decided to go on an excursion to Mount Wilson, a delightful and quite remote mountain village blessed with perfect soil and conditions for cool climate gardens.   Let me take you for a walk past the gates of the grand gardens.
