A beautiful book by Australian author and gardener Rosemary Davies.
Gardens and Birds of the Macedon Ranges is exactly what the title suggests – it describes the glorious and significant gardens to be found in the Macedon Ranges region along with captivating imagery.
This book gives great insight both into native plants to the area as well as those that have been introduced and absolutely thrive. It also goes into detail on local birdlife, with images by photographer Ron Weste and an A-Z of birds to help with identification.
You’ll be inspired reading about eight very special heritage gardens on Mt Macedon, including the magnificent Forest Glade, Duneira Estate and Cameron Lodge & Gardens. There is also information about unique flora you’ll find in the region’s Botanic Gardens, plus gardens in neighbouring villages of Woodend, Tylden, Kyneton and Daylesford.
An absolutely perfect gift for anyone who adores gardening, horticulture and bird life.
Add one of our Rodriquez Blue Wren Tea Towels, a ceramic mug handmade in historic Malmsbury or organic herbal tea by Tea of Earth to your book for an extra special gift.
