Reflections on the water. Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden

We had a lovely visit to these gardens near Burnie. Look for more photos in an upcoming post.



I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.


  1. Oh my! That really is beautiful! We are still waiting for actual spring to drop buy. It snowed yesterday and it’s still melting today. I’m sure something is going to bloom any day now. We have daffodils and the snow didn’t kill the two (count them, two) tulips that have buds. Other things ae trying really hard to grow if only Earth would cooperate with them. But that is absolutely gorgeous! I didn’t know rhododendrons came in so many colors.

    • I’m going to post more pictures from this park. Rhododendrons are not in season right now but there was so much lovely autumn foliage in the park. That was my last photo of the day and when I saw the reflections I thought I must post it.
