"A Day In The Valey" - Garden Tour of Pilton Valley 21/10/12

Yesterday I went back to the beautiful Pilton Valley in South East Queensland, where I called home for the first half of my life.  I attended a very nostalgic tour of the area visiting many beautiful home gardens in the Stunning Pilton Valley.

While it was not a bird watching trip, I still saw quite a few beauties amongst the beautiful gardens and scenery.  They included:

Red-Rumped Parrots
Pale-Headed Roseallas
Little Corellas
Double Barred Finch
Striated Pardalote
Willie Wagtail
Australian Magpie Lark (Pee Wee)

Galah
Noisy Miner


"Avonlee"
Jacaranda Tree at "Avonlee"


 





"Ravensthorpe"
 
Ravensthorpe - This is my favourite photo from this beautiful property.





While I thought this old building covered in this flowering plant was beautiful, the owner told me it is a dreadful weed called Cats Claw Creeper, and it is terribly hard to get rid of.  My Mother told me that it was a common plant in very old gardens.
 
"Casey Park"

    1. Thank you John, the photos didn't turn out how I had hoped as it was the middle of the day and very glary! I thoroughly enjoyed it though.
