Our first outing for the year was a lovely day out at the Springvale Cemetery Botanical gardens. The weather was perfect and the gardens amazing. There was so much to see and so many areas of interest. The Japanese Garden is a recent addition and no expense has been spared as it incorporates art, sculpture and landscaping to make a beautiful garden. The Chinese section was quite different with many elaborate tombs and memorials. There were rose gardens, significant trees and impressive sculptures to admire. We all had some good exercise as we strolled around enjoying the experience. Our other plans are on hold until we can again travel together. In the meantime we are fortunate to have our own gardens and Boolarra’s beautiful trees to bring us joy.
