|Not sure why they were playing in the gardens but they had attracted a large crowd.|
|Walkng through the top gate we were greeted by a huge bed of tulips|
|Shady Lady Red - this is a Telopea (Waratah) hybrid|
|The azaleas were in full flower|
|These little babies were swimming as fast as they could - it took me a while to get a photo of them|
|Proud mother duck|
|Rhododendrons and camelias|
|There was a whole bed of these cyclamen they looked fantastic|
|Looking up through the branches of a huge Cork Oak.|
Then into the conservatory where there were magnificent orchids and hippeastrums!
|My dad grew ones like this but I have never had success.|
Next stop was the State Cinema to see Red Dog. It was so funny and sad, what a marvellous dog.
