It’s Open Garden season now in the Top End and I’m really looking forward to seeing this year’s displays as there are lots of new gardens opening up, many of them in the rural area. It’s one of the Dry Season’s treats and a nice little weekend outing. Tomorrow’s will be at Batchelor, about 1.5 hours down the Stuart Highway so we’ll combine it with a picnic and excursion.
I took this photo last year at an Open Garden and just saw it again in my folders. It’s not the greatest photo but I thought they were cute so here it is…..two baby flying foxes asleep among the palm fronds. I didn’t want to use the flash and wake them up/hurt their eyes. I take no credit for spotting…some bright-eyed youngster saw them and shared the news. I particularly like this garden too as they have a lovely open entertainment area where you can sit with a cup of coffee and admire the garden, as well as some cool sculptures.
Part of this wonderful rural garden.
