A garden devoted to Californian plants makes up a small but distinctive section of the Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. It is named for Dame Elisabeth Murdoch, the mother of Rupert Murdoch of News Corporation that great conglomerate that tells the world everything that Rupert thinks the world needs to know.
Elisabeth on the other hand is known as one of the great Australian philanthropists. I wonder what she would think about her family now.
After a while I wasn’t too sure if I was still in the California garden so I just collected what was in the immediate area. If I am wrong – and if you know I am wrong – then tell me and I’ll go back another day and be more careful. (“Cos I wasn’t actually going there to see California but just to see the Gardens – If you get my drift.)
