Of course, the art by both artists was beautiful, but I had no idea how enchanting the gardens were. I spent a couple of hours wandering the winding paths and taking many photos.
Though spring has progressed, there were still plenty of blossoms and flowers.
Some covered with lichen (proving that the air here is very clean).
Some with new lime green leaves.
The stage area, with rows of hedges either side, the ‘wings’ that the actors/dancers emerged from.
Amazing dry-stone walls by Danish-born landscape designer Paul Sorensen.
A beautiful Grotto Pool, with fern leaves reflecting in the water, looking like etched glass.
I saw a water skink sunning itself on one of the many garden sculptures that have been ingeniously created from the stumps of trees that have been cut down.
There were sculptures of birds, wombats and koalas.
These sunny little beings.
I am so glad that I made the effort to come out and see the exhibition, and Everglades, for it has reminded me that this is the landscape I live in. I am so lucky.
