Geelong Botanic Gardens Pages: one  two three

  As you would expect in a garden - lovely lawns and walkways.  
Flowers in all sizes and shapes grown to perfection.    

After planting some of these trees at home we noticed them here.  We are concerned now as they are much bigger than we thought.  We hope that they have been growing in better conditions a lot longer than ours and therefore we have no problems in our lifetime.  Our kids may though!
