Quarry Hill Botanical Garden in Pictures

This last week I took a trip to Quarry Hill Botanical Garden in Glen Ellen. Quarry Hill is a world renowned Asian themed garden that was all started from wild seed. It’s a great and unique collection. This is a slideshow of my photos from the trip. Lots of macro shots.
