Open Gardens

G'day Blogworld,

The Heyfield Ambulance Auxiliary conducted an open gardens fund raiser this weekend. There were 12 gardens open for the public to wander through and enjoy. I saw 2 today that in my book are worthy of mention.

Errol and Jenny's property on Licola Rd is a mix of open/cleared farmland and original box/ironbark bush. They have achieved some wonderful results, particularly around the house and nearest dam.

Jenny's bird list is envious and includes Rufous Fantail, Red-capped Robin, Diamond Firetail, Azure Kingfisher, Latham's Snipe and Satin Flycatcher. As the crow flys, their property is only a short distance from the golf course but they don't have NOISY MINERS! Well, not like the numbers we have.

Mike and Hele, and John and Nancy occupy adjoining units in the middle of town. Both couples have recently moved in from larger properties on the outskirts and are avid gardeners. Their new units are excellent examples of what can be achieved in a small space.

Both gardens are low maintenace and spectacular. They bring delight to their owners and I can assure them, to all passers-by too.

Some achievement Hele - just wonderful!
Double delight indeed J&N! 
All hail and thanks to all involved.
