Christmas in july bus trip friday 28th july
Our July bus trip was a great day out and thank you to Kangaroo Bus Lines for taking us everywhere.
We visited a magnificent garden at 10 Kaalba Court, Kiels Mountain and met the inspirational Craig and his son Declan. They made us most welcome and we had a lovely morning tea enjoying the magnificent views. There were lots of unusual succulents and cycads and many other interesting plants. They have achieved a lot with such little water to use.
Lunch at Le Relais Bressan was delicious. Our hosts looked after us very well and nothing was too much trouble.
Harry and Noela Duncanson at Woombye showed us the amazing number of plants they have fitted onto their residential block. They have collected a huge variety of plants including many succulents, cacti, orchids, tillandsia and we all learned much from them. Their plants for sale were very popular with many people taking home something spiky and unusual. Some people even had time to enjoy a cup of tea there!
It was a wonderful day trip to a fabulous garden with fabulous views and dry garden plants, lunch at the French restaurant and then another great garden in the afternoon. We also celebrated John Lyon's birthday.
