The Fabulous Gardens In Leongatha

Whenever I drive through Leongatha along the South Gippsland Highway the first thing I’m always taken with is the beautiful roadside plantings throughout the local area.

Then as I walked along the streets one day with camera in hand, I couldn’t help but be impressed by the neat, and well kept condition of many of the lawns and gardens in the town, mind you, the local shire council offices are situated here, so it makes perfect sense that the amenities and aesthetics of the place are tended to regularly … never-the-less, it is a wonderful sight to see.

Pictures include street scenes, native lilly pilly berries, gum tree pods, wattle blossom, daffodils, pink camelia, red hot poker spike, autumn leaves, eucalypt tree bark, garden pots, a magpie and more.

These lovely photographs of the gardens in Leongatha tell the story much better than I could possibly do with words … enjoy!

Beautiful Photo Of The Sturt Desert Pea

I actually took this photo of the botanically named Swainsona formosa FABACEAE at the Black Mountain Botanic Gardens in Canberra on my last road trip, but then realised it’s also one of the specialist wildflower plants grown by our large local Wholesale Native Plant Nursery in Sandy Point.

Beautiful Pictures From Mount Worth

I just love the natural colours, digitally enhanced and artistically inspired photos that were taken of the native bushland, tree ferns, fungi and moss, Mountain Ash, Blackwood and Eucalypt trees, walking tracks, walk bridges and rusted machinery at MOUNT WORTH STATE PARK.

This lovely and peaceful national park can be found North West of Mirboo North.

We’ve sold this album many times over, so people can make stunning art prints for the home, nature collections for websites, images for books, advertisements, brochures for accommodation places and other publications. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them too!

Inside The Nursery Hot House

This photo was taken inside the greenhouse at the Narkabundah Native Plant Nursery in Sandy Point on the far eastern coast of South Gippsland.

It shows the delightfully colourful array of potted Australian Wild Flowers, this wholesale business supplies right around the country. The metal trolley in the centre of the pathway adds a focal point and combines well with the straight rows of red kangaroo paw in the background.

Honey Eater Gets The Sage Flower

These long billed honey-eaters were regular visitors to my property in South Gippsland and this particular photo was taken in a permaculture garden I once established at Mount Best in Victoria, and visited again just recently.

Many thanks to the new owners Ray and Lorraine, who still affectionately call it “Lizzies Garden” … and it was with great appreciation we saw it some 7 years later, beautifully nurtured, expanded, improved, flowering and flourishing. ~ ER

This delightful little bird enjoyed the pink sage flowers for almost a minute, while we were only an arms length away.
