Well I shouldn't complain too much as I did pop out on a date with Mr R recently to Eryldene House in Gordon. It was built back in 1914 for the late Professor Waterhouse and his wife. Prof. Waterhouse is responsible for bringing camellias into Australia so as you can imagine there are quite a no of them around the garden. The house is Georgian in Style and very modest by today's standards but I expect back in the day it was great luxury. At later stages the Prof. had a garden study added to work from which is an enchanting place to sit and work.

|Look how massive the Eucalyptus is! Yes it is just one tree|

|oh just between you and I there is a small cutting of this Bergonia that simply wanted to come home with me|
|Mr R could hear the doves and just wanted to see they could get out (they could)|
