I have been meaning to post for quite some time to catch you up on all the happenings of my life (and there are many!). More posts will come but in the meantime I have a few photos that I have been dying to share. They’re from a wonderful morning in the gardens of a beautiful and significant house in my local area. The house is called Baddow House, one of the earliest houses in Maryborough. It has only in the last few years been beautifully renovated. The house is beautiful, but it’s the gardens that made my heart sing. Take a look for yourself…

I don’t know if you can see it that clearly, but there is this beautiful garden gate under the tree in the photo above. That corner of the garden was my favourite part. The gate just led to a lovely green hill, but there was just something about it that just made me imagine a rambling cottage garden spilling colours onto the grass, a little piece of random colour in the formal gardens. My future garden will have a gate. Just so you know.

The house and garden is only open once a year, so you’ve all missed your chance this year, but if you get a chance to have a look next year you won’t be disappointed (unless gardens aren’t really your thing, in which case you can have a pumpkin scone with jam and cream while some other awesome people explore the house and garden). I really needed this garden visit, I had been feeling a little disconnected and it helped to ground me.
