Colours of Cloudehill

In the third and final post on the Cloudehill Gardens, I selected a range of flowers that were impressive in their vibrancy and shape. The summer flowers are in full bloom. They have designed the gardens beds extremely well. It is a design with layers within a bed that will flower at different times making for year round interest. Most gardeners (including me) plant for a short spring display but the Summer period can last much longer. Planting a garden high in the hills can also help the plants from being cooked during a hot spell and can extend the spring feeling. Entry is free for kids and for members of the Diggers Club – otherwise it is $10 per person. Well worth the journey and the cost.
