the blue mountains
The guesthouse has beautiful gardens so as soon as I arrived I went for a roam in the garden as I knew bad weather was approaching.
Some of the nooks and crannies in the garden.
The garden has some cool climate plants I just don't see in Sydney.
I also found some spots of colour.
and of course my favourite hydrangeas.
Succulents were a feature of the front garden beds.
and of course the magnificent grandiflora magnolia.
The next day I woke to find the garden and the mountains covered in fog. It cleared a little later in the day so I headed over to Wentworth Falls to do the Overcliff walk.
A view along the walk.
The unique Australian bush.
Putting the blue into the Blue Mountains.
A view of Wentworth Falls, a very popular tourist destination.
After lunch in Leura, I drove over to the Sublime Point Lookout, a place I'd not visited before where I found these gorgeous banksias.
The view from Sublime Point and with those threatening clouds I returned home for the day.
See you all again soon for the last stop on my mini break to the Blue Mountains.
Bye for now,
