The Wonderful Gardens of Cloudehill

A nature photographer’s dream: The gardens of Cloudehill in Olinda are stunning and while many coastal gardens are drying out and becoming a bit cooked in the late summer heat, the Cloudehill gardens are still in full flower. The variety of flowers (perennials and annuals) are amazing and the woods that lead into the lower gardens and gullies are cool and inviting. I explored the garden rooms, the pathways and woods, looking for colour, interesting features and of course birds.
