North Lodge in Winter ....




North Lodge located in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens
was once home to the head gardener and his family
It's now used as a book shop and also a meeting house
for the "Friends of the Botanic Gardens"




I love how the tendrils of the glory vine
cling to to walls giving it an air of mystery
like something out of a Dickensian novel

It must look good in Autumn when the leaves are red.

I can imagine how dramatically this cottage would change with the seasons.

Very Dickensian to me too! Wonderful atmosphere with the touch of roving colour on the vine!

And with some of the red autumn leaves still hanging on there it looks lovely. Tantalizing little peek into the windows there Dianne.

This is such a lovely time of year and this series captures it wonderfully. Especially love the top photo - oh I can't wait for autumn to arrive and beat this summer heat!

Beautiful photos of a lovely historic house. I am sure it looks lovely also when it is covered with green.

Straight out of a fairy-tale. Must be a great place to discover. Please have a good Tuesday.

Right out of a fairy tale indeed! What a fascinating place! I love all the old vines! I'd love to see it in the springtime! Hope your week is off to a good start, Dianne! Enjoy!

What a lovely cottage. The vines are pretty crawling all around. Beautiful photos, thanks for sharing.

Valerie said...

A tantalising series that certainly whets the appetite (in more ways than one!). Will have to pay a visit.

I always love photos taken from a window...this is lovely, too! The basket catches my eye!

Andrea said...

I wish you can visit at different seasons and post the Four Seasons using the photos. We don't have the seasons so fascinated by them, i even cross-stitched a frame with 4 seasons at the same time. Will those vines still grow with the changing temperatures? Beautiful, though a bit eerie!

Stewart M said...

The vines do add to "aged" look of the buildings.

Any sign of Miss Havisham?

Cheers - Stewart M

I like that last shot, Dianne. Very simple, but very evocative nonetheless.

darlin said...

Absolutely beautiful! Excellent captures of an exquisite, rustic looking place. I'd love to see it when the vines are all green. :-)

Stefan Jansson said...

Would be fun to see more photos from this place.

Rae Walter said...

Love these images Dianne. There is so much to wonder about the place inside behind the facade. Beautiful.
