Dunlop's Garden…

The garden we visited today saw us take a walk just down the road to our next door neighbours Jan and Ross Dunlop (Ross is the local mayor) I have admired the house from afar…

Keep walking past the house and onto the expansive back lawn and tennis court…

The view of the back of the house from the tennis court…(swimming pool and changing shed just to the left) The french doors on the right was added on and this is where the kitchen can now be found…

From there we walked through the bush track to the lookout…

And then through the lovely old wrought iron gates to the wool shed…

The wool shed was fill of memorabilia from the past… and also had a brief description of the history of the property…

No garden visiting tomorrow… tomorrow we are cleaning up the section at the workers house in preparation for a relief milker… and after all the hard work is done I will get to go visit some on Wednesday with the Kindred Heart Stitchers’ and my lovely Mum…

Keep smiling…

These garden tours are a great way to see houses you only get to peek at aren't they. This house is just beautiful!!

Have a fantastic day.

What a stunning house and property. Would keep a keen gardener very busy! Beautiful ocean views too.

I love that house although it looks very un-Kiwi doesn't it?! Great fun to go garden visiting.
