AROUND THE GARDEN

Autumn is well and truly here as there are some amazing colours that reflect this incredible season. The scenery changes weekly and I love watching it all unfold right before me. I took a quick walk down to Japan yesterday looking for Autumn colours for the newsletter and I couldn’t go past Picrasma quassioides. You will find this on the right hand side of the road as you come around the top corner heading down to Japan (opposite the camellia sasanqua’s).

Some of our handy and creative volunteers that have undertaken the North American wall rebuild have hit the ground running! From organising truckloads of large rocks to be delivered through to driving machinery, rock placing and draining the water level which enables the volunteers to get down in the lake and in the mud. It appears to be ahead of schedule at the moment which is fantastic and is looking great. We still have barrier tape up in some areas around the lake, but you are still able to walk around some parts in North America and soak up the Autumn colours.
