On this 1st week of May we have sold, departed from Yallaroo and are living temporarily with a relative in western Sydney until a suitable house in the Blue Mountains appears.
Early in the week we visited the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden at Mount Tomah. We had a splendid day wandering through the extensive gardens admiring the excellent collection of the flora from cool climates.
Of particular interest were the local indigenous plants. Hopefully at least some will find a home when we establish our Blue Mountain’s garden.
Lambertia formosa, Mountain Devil, (see image) could be considered the unofficial emblem of the Blue Mountains and will certainly be included in our new garden.
