Spring has sprung here at Bendigo Cottages! The garden is blooming and I'm enjoying discovering the myriad of flowers popping their heads up to bask in the sunshine in different corners of the garden. Gardens bring birds and with it their song - such a delight to hear each morning! I've recently taken over ownership of the Cottages from Sue and Tony and every day brings a new discovery. The peace and quietude of the garden still surprises me, especially given the close proximity to town - only 10 minutes walk to all that View St, Bendigo's historic Arts precinct has to offer. If you enjoy flowers don't miss the stunning display of tulips in Pall Mall and the Conservatory Gardens - just a 10-15 minute walk from here. Over 30,000 tulips are in full bloom in the most spectacular colours. Enjoy the visual spectacle - or if you're a tulip buff, join one of the curatorial talks which can be booked through the visitor centre. Come to Bendigo, the spring gardens beckon.
