National Rhododendron Gardens

I can’t believe that it is over three weeks since Mom has been here – in some ways it feels like forever ago. Anyway here is part 2 of her stay here. We live not too far from The Yarra Ranges and it makes a beautiful drive into the forests and hills. One of the few sunny days we decided to head up to the National Rhododendron Gardens in Olinda, It was the perfect time of year to head there as all the Rhododendron/ azalea varieties were starting to bloom. Add to that all the cherry blossom  and Magnolias and it made a beautiful walk.

Enjoy the photo tour.

And finally one of the landmarks of Sassafras Village – Miss Marples Tearoom. There was no way we could get a seat so we opted for the Black Kettle instead.
