Australia Visit - October 2017 - Morning Star Nursery and Kapunda Copper Mine

The main purpose of the trip out to Kapunda was to visit Morning Star Nursery.   I've been 'following' Morning Star Nursery on Facebook for quite a while now, and always admired the photo's the owner put up of pelargoniums and, of course, her beautiful Iris plants.   I was delighted that Anne Hazel agreed that we could visit.  Anne had recently lost her husband and felt the nursery, particularly the pelargoniums, was not up to her usual standard.  However, we said we would not mind, and so the visit was arranged.

 Thank you, Anne, for all the cuttings and for letting us visit.  Hope to be back one day.

After our visit to the Nursery, we went on to take a look at the old KapundaCopper Mine.  There wasn't a lot of information about, so these are just pictures.
