We had horrendous winds here on Sunday and all the parks and gardens here in the Dandenongs, famous for their wonderful gardens in Spring time, were closed. We had visitors coming for afternoon tea as they really wanted to show their family member from Malaysia the gardens in this area. Very disappointed and quite flustered by the wind they needed some time out when they arrived. After a cup of tea and a glass of champagne they had to make do with a walk around my garden. What an excuse for me. I loved it. I had the camellias and the azaleas in bloom thay had wanted to see, plus my 2 pride and joys, tree peonie and standard wysteria, sadly not in bloom i got to point out. Plus my 2 gymea lillies about to flower.They were impressed but kept commenting on how much work it was with a hint of head shaking.. I reassured them of how much i get out of it but I think they think I'm a bit .
