That is the fountain backyard on the Vaucluse Home.
And right here is the enclosed cool and shaded space adjoining to the home dominated by the tree fern and tower.
The feel and patterns of the Australian straw tree fern (Cyathea cooperi) are outstanding.
The Alloxylon flammeum (its widespread names are purple silky oak or tree waratah) has magnificent purple flowers and is commonly cultivated as a small tree.

On a go to to Leura, within the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, I encountered this submit field surrounded by attractive blooms.
On one of many harbor paths to the Opera Home, this mass of flowers with the stone wall made a stunning vignette.
