Mintaro is a small historic town located in the beautiful Clare Valley
region of our state ... generally known for it's wines .. food trails
and wonderful blue/grey Mintaro slate.
I noticed this wonderful old fashioned buttery-yellow rambling rose
drooping over one of the many slate walls
It's also home to many cottage style B&B's and of course
delightful little tea rooms chock-a-block with memrobilia
from the early to mid 1800's
Stone walls abound in this little town with their aged patina
who wouldn't want one in their garden?
