Over recent days and for the next few days I am featuring photos taken at the Pangarinda Arboretum at Wellington, South Australia. This collection of Australian Native Plants is truly spectacular when in flower and features plants from all over Australia.
Pangarinda Arboretum at Wellington South Australia is about a half hour drive south of Murray Bridge and just over an hour from the CBD of Adelaide. It is a collection of hundreds of Australian Native Plants established and maintained by local plant enthusiasts.
One of our favourite places to visit near our home is the Pangarinda Arboretum at Wellington near the Murray River in South Australia. It is about a half hour drive from home. The arboretum is a vast collection of Australian native plants, many of them displaying spectacular flowers. Over the coming days I will be showcasing some of those plants and flowers on this site.
Over the last few days I have been sharing photos of flowers and plants in the garden of a friend. Today I feature the last of these photos, plus a bonus.
Our friends told us that a pair of Tawny Frogmouths had been resident in a tree just over the fence for some years. These birds had even raised several broods of young in recent times. It just happens to be one of my favourite birds too – and so easy to photograph!
As I wrote a few days ago my wife and I were invited to a friend’s garden a while back to take photos of flowers and cuttings for propagation. She and her husband had collected and grown a wide range of Australian native plants over many years; every spot in the property was utilised. They were about to sell and move elsewhere so we jumped at the opportunity for one last look.
I was particularly taken with the water features in the beautiful pots shown above. Such a simple way to grow, feature and display plants one does not usually see in your average house garden.
My next post in two days’ time will feature more flowers – and one of my feathered friends.
