Tip-Toe Through the Tulips

Despite a heavy downpour, intrepid members of the Ocean Grove - Surfside Probus Club could still admire the exquisite plantings of Lambley Gardens & Nursery at Ascot, a short drive from Ballarat.

Tall green hedges of European privet opened to reveal a treasure trove of spring blooms and blossoms.

In drenching rain, owner David Glenn led the group through the various gardens. For the Probians, the rain was inconvenient but for the dry-climate garden, which is watered just four times a year, it was very welcome.
