SLIDER

the blue mountains

Just before I returned to work, I took a mini break in the Blue Mountains. I stayed at Silvermere, a lovely old fashioned bed and breakfast in Wentworth Falls. The weather was a bit cool and grey, perfect weather for walking.



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,

Jillian
