Up the hill
Artemisia and I took the hill ride on our way to a fringe cut. The slow ascent offered views of gardens with lavish thick hedges. Many of the gardens use plants to create privacy and fencing and the overall effect is verdant. Daylesford is positively beautiful because of the gardens it boasts. If you stripped it of its green cloak, its mix of mature evergreen and deciduous trees and its thick tall cypress hedges, what nudity you would have.
I only wish that the main street had large shade trees too.
Up the hill we filled our lungs with garden air.
