the blue mountains

Just before I returned to work, I took a mini break in the Blue Mountains. I stayed at Silvermere, a lovely old fashioned bed and breakfast in Wentworth Falls. The weather was a bit cool and grey, perfect weather for walking.

The guesthouse has beautiful gardens so as soon as I arrived I went for a roam in the garden as I knew bad weather was approaching.

Some of the nooks and crannies in the garden.

The garden has some cool climate plants I just don't see in Sydney.

I also found some spots of colour.

and of course my favourite hydrangeas.

Succulents were a feature of the front garden beds.

and of course the magnificent grandiflora magnolia.

The next day I woke to find the garden and the mountains covered in fog. It cleared a little later in the day so I headed over to Wentworth Falls to do the Overcliff walk.

A view along the walk.

The unique Australian bush.

Putting the blue into the Blue Mountains.

A view of Wentworth Falls, a very popular tourist destination.

After lunch in Leura, I drove over to the Sublime Point Lookout, a place I'd not visited before where I found these gorgeous banksias.

The view from Sublime Point and with those threatening clouds I returned home for the day.

See you all again soon for the last stop on my mini break to the Blue Mountains.

Bye for now,
