Visiting Lambley

Lambley Nursery were having their winter sale and it doesn’t take a lot of nous to recognize the value of a half price sale of lovely frost and drought proof plants.

Lambley is just outside the historic gold field town of Clunes and the drive from Castlemaine, on a glorious autumnal day was spectacular. Since I have been living in the Gold Fields Region I have come to fully appreciate the traditional landowners connection with the land. Driving through the rich volcanic landscape to reach Lambley is a joy.

The day was completed by coming home and planting the acquired treasures in the front garden. Spring will bring a whole new look as bulbs emerge and flower and beauties, like Russian Sage, sprout and flower.
