Artist Dee Jones captures a northern aspect of the Carrick Hill garden

Following on from the post on Carrick Hill, the house; here is a glimpse of the "Endless Pleasures Exhibition - The art of gardens and gardening."

The exhibition attempts to trace various aspects of Australian gardening through-out the past two hundred years or so.

The exhibition uses garden guides, gardening tools, implements, arts and crafts, furniture and ornaments to  display Australian gardening styles and methods over time.

Cubby house features a miniature display.

The exhibition runs through to 31st January 2016.

The Carrick Hill Gardens showcase interesting garden design as well as various sculptures and artistic flourishes.

Noted South Australian gardener Trevor Nottle's book accompanies the exhibition and is available for purchase at the gift shop.

You might also like to stay for lunch or afternoon tea at the Carrick Hill Cafe. 

And for the kids there is a themed Children's Storybook Trail covering a half kilometre of the gardens.
