Dame Elisabeth Murdoch, 102: Visit her delightful gardens in August
I love this spooky pic. We see the driveway to Cruden Farm, the acclaimed garden of Dame Elisabeth Murdoch, 102 year-old mother of Rupert. She still lives an active life by all accounts. The trees that invite us into the misty unknown are lemon-scented gum (Corymbia citriodora). To view them in person, fly to Australia and take advantage of an open garden day on August 28, 2011: details here and here. I'm astonished to learn that Dame Elisabeth is a Buddhist, though I don't know why I am astonished.
