Spring at Cloudehill

Cloudehill is a beautiful garden and nursery located near Olinda in the Dandenong Ranges, just a short drive from Melbourne. With a layout inspired by the famous Arts and Crafts gardens of England - Hidcote, Sissinghurst etc, this is a great place to wander around with a digital camera, capturing the many colourful specimens only found in the cooler climes of Australia. And a great place to burn off the extra kilos gained by dining at the restaurant....
