Twin Garden Day at 'Iwona': outback Qld

Spring wrapped its generous arms around the gardens surrounding Elizabeth Gearey's and Jenny and Roly Walker's homes on this the first Sunday of October.

Located about one hour's drive north of Mitchell, Iwona (a cattle property) comprises attractive grasslands where native trees and shrubs are plentiful.

Green lawns, fruit trees, vegetable gardens, colourful flower beds, and white cedars and bright red callistemons in full bloom surround both homes. This creates a softness in contrast to the semi-arid nature of the adjoining land.

Unusual rocks -- found on the property -- form sculptural pieces within the garden.

These monthly garden days held in Mitchell and surrounds, offer generous hospitality to people who share a love of plants and gardens.

Thank you Elizabeth, Jenny and Roly for your warm welcome, delicious gluten-free morning tea and hospitality. We had a wonderful day!
