The next garden to impress me was established mid 1800s. Best to bear in mind that these gardens suffered through 13 years of severe drought and many plants would have been lost. A very tranquil garden and the owner had classical music playing which was a lovely touch. That big bush on the right in the last photo is a yellow Banksia rose, but that wasn't as big as another I'll show you in a minute. Behind this bed was an orchard.
