Mayfield Gardens.

Autumn is my favourite season. I love the cool air with the sunny days. I love the colours of the leaves. Everything about autumn makes me happy. So when we visited the beautiful Mayfield Gardens a few weeks ago I was so excited.

There were heaps of other amazing things to see; luxury chook yards, a grassed amphitheatre, a huge bird Avery, display veggie gardens and even a new oriental garden in the works. I’d love to come back in spring and see everything in flower!
