This was a fabulous trip and I took lots of photos , this being the one that I felt caught the moody atmosphere of the place , if you want more then you,ll just have to go see it for your self , heres the link for times of opening etc .
How wonderful to have this fine collection of rare and exotic plants and trees on our doorstep . A beautiful and natural valley location with gentle paths and walkways , over and around enchanting pools , streams and waterfalls . Boulders , mossy fallen trees , bromliads , graceful ferns , and Gunneras give way to rocky banks with Agaves , grasses , succulents and cacti . Then more , musas and bamboos , restios and puyas , palms and tree ferns with yet , and please note , even more variety than one usually sees .
Being a little hard of hearing , I would,ve liked to see some plant labels .... but this is a garden that you simply MUST go and see , and I will have to go back and spend more time taking it all in .
There are also some very special works of Art to explore and experience .
