The scented garden, with the Husband enjoying his lunch in a patch of shade
We’re on another road trip down to NSW, another 3,500km + round trip. It’s getting to be a habit, and we have the journey down pat, complete with start times, fuel stops for the car, and fuel stops for us…
The sweetly scented Yesterday,
Today and Tomorrow
Curry plant, very aromatic in hot weather
Edible sage foreground, salvia behind
Rosemary, a huge bush of it
The fountain and view through to the rest of the gardens, with a flame tree in the background
Gorgeous furry red Kangaroo Paws
Left is lemon scented geranium, right is peppermint scented geranium and lilac-flowered garlic chives in the background
A beautiful lollipop shaped pink frangipani
Kalanchoe beharensis: it’s like enormous furry grey elephant ears. Isn’t it awesome?
This beautiful neon-red rose smells gorgeous, and look how brilliant the colour is in the sun!
This is a pictorial view of our lunchtime stopping place on the journey down. It’s in public gardens in Rockhampton, and is quite beautiful. We chose the area because of the fountain initially, but now it’s a favourite because of the way it smells! They have laid out a scent garden: some perfumed, some culinary, some flowers, some foliage. I don’t have any of my botanic books with me, so I can’t give Latin names, and can’t identify some of what you’ll see, but it all smells fabulous.
