Plein Air – March

This month we will try the Lilian Fraser Garden, corner of Bellamy and Laurence St, Pennant Hills.

This is small garden, with lots of paths, trees, bushes. At this time of year not a lot in flower so perhaps a visit later in the year would be a good repeat.

There are no facilities there unless we book the meeting room which I do not think necessary,  ,so no toilets, no coffee. Parking is a bit difficult on the road immediately outside but plenty in the nearby Vaughan Avenue.
