Orange, also known as the Colour City, was in full bloom when we visited. The city sits at an elevation of 865m and has cold winters making it ideal for apple, pear, cherry orchards and grape vines for cold climate wines. It also means that summers are a little milder than most inland cities because of the height.
All this makes for beautiful parks and gardens in the area. At the moment the trees have new leaves and it is amazing the range of greens and reds on display. Roses, rhododendron, lavender and a wide range of flowers I don’t know are in bloom.
It is a great time of the year to be on the road.
Beautiful parks and gardens! Thank you for sharing them.
Very nice area….we loved it here.
Near home sweet home. Back in the “‘olden days” we used to travel from Sydney by train and had to change trains at Orange due to the different rail gauge! Memories!
Glad it bought back good memories for you. Very pretty place.
Look at all those gorgeous flowers! I want them all for Casa Debbio.
Aren’t they gorgeous and they would look great in the garden at Vergemoli.
