The Last of LassO'Gowrie Garden

This is the last two photos of the huge garden bed full of roses and contrasting herbaceous border.

This photo shows the back fence where the tennis court was. Looking through the tennis court one can see the harsh area beyond. I can remember Lyle telling me that they drove hundreds of miles to tennis gatherings which were a real social event for whole families to take part in.

Below is one of the newer garden beds, a little less established but never the less very attractive in it's own way. It gives a glimpse of better things to come.

So that was in the front gate at Lass O'Gowrie, around the homestead and through the gardens to the back gate and tennis court.

So we say goodbye to Lass O'Gowrie and the wonderful hostess and her family who treated us like royalty.
One can see by the wonderful food and the way it is presented that it is a lot of hard work to cater for coach full of people. However these women are so gracious they give the appearance that it is no bother at all.

Did this one get "out of order" perhaps from Draft.... you need to alter the date saved to maintain the order.
