This weekend on a beautiful Autumn day we visited the Alfred Nicholas Memorial Gardens in Sherbrooke in the Dandenong Ranges. Picnic areas, open grass areas, and lovely walking tracks. Entry was free. Autumn leaves vibrant in colours made the gardens totally picturesque. The day was a little cool and we needed to rug up, however the walk was quiet steep at times, so we soon warmed up. The best was down the bottom of the gardens.It was a lovely ornamental lake, with gorgeous bridges to walk over. On the day the lake was covered in autumn leaves and just looked magical. There was also a little boathouse. Mighty Mouse knocked on the door however no one was home. It had lots of beautiful areas to check out, I totally recommend going in Autumn because it was a spectacular sight with the colourful Autumn leaves. Although I think it would be a gorgeous place to visit in spring and summer to have a family picnic.
I can not believe I never knew about these gardens before, all these years I been visiting the area and going for walks, and never knew about this treasure. Since starting this blog, I have made an effort to search for and research about interesting places to visit near to where I live. I have found so many treasures, and it has made life so much more colourful and exciting.
Finally today I visited the local library to listen to live music being performed. It was on the classical and folk music style. However it was totally delightful to watch them perform with their instruments and listen to their music.
A totally delightful weekend!
