Persimmons, have you ever tried one of these?

Persimmon tree takes 8 years before it fruits, so I need to get a few real soon.

Well I hope you enjoyed your walk around the Gardens with us. I had a heap more pics to show you. Last August we had a quick visit in the winter season, so may be you would want to have a quick look there too ... the magnolias and bulbs were just coming into season then.

There is one more part to this trip ... that I will post tomorrow.
