Its spring and the earth is exploding into life. Sarah Depasquale and I are excited to be part of the 15th birthday celebrations of the Melton Botanic Gardens.
These gardens are a jewel in the western suburbs of Melbourne, superb design with beds full of plants from around the world but with a focus on South African, indigenous and endemic species. The lake is also home to the endangered Lathams Snipe, a migratory bird that breeds in northern Japan and Siberia.
Sarah and I have a passion for telling stories on site; one of our favourite places for sharing stories has been the Edithvale Seaford bird hide.
