Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

For this week’s photo challenge, I have decided to show some photos of the lovely Alowyn Gardens in the Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.

The reason that I have picked these gardens is that they were purposely arranged for the delight of others. They are situated on 4 acres of land just outside of Yarra Glen.

Prior to the hard work of those who arranged the garden, the land was a horse paddock. It sported nothing but grass.

The garden was arranged to provide an informative and educational experience. It has 6 distinct areas:

  1. The perennial border.
  2. The dry garden.
  3. The edible garden.
  4. The forest garden.
  5. The parterre garden.
  6. The display gardens.

It really is a wonderful place to explore. If you would like more information, please see their website at http://www.alowyngardens.com.au/index.html. They also have some lovely photos of each of the garden areas.

So here are my photos of the garden. Unfortunately the light wasn’t the greatest when we went, but I think they give you an idea of what you can find.

  14. I was just looking at a photo of the very overly formal gardens of Versailles, I think I would prefer to visit your gardens, they’re so lovely. This garden looks like one that was meant to be enjoyed. I want to wander down that path. Thanks for showing those.

    • Thank you. It was definitley designed with enjoyment in mind. I love that it feels homely. It isn’t perfect and that makes it even more special. You feel like it could be your own garden (with a lot of hard work). If you are ever in the area, go and visit. You won’t regret it.
