Wonderful Waterlilies at Blue Lotus Water Garden
Five residents were quick to put up their hands when they heard a bus trip was heading to the Blue Lotus Water Garden in April.
The amazing gardens, located in Yarra Junction, cover over 14 acres and feature thousands of waterlilies, lotus and other exotic and rare flowering plants. With dozens of ponds and two lakes, connected by 15 ornate bridges, this was not an adventure for the faint hearted.
Mayflower works hard to provide all residents with opportunities to access activities that stimulate body and mind. So, two staff members from Mayflower’s Aged Care facility in Reservoir were on hand to assist with wheelchairs, while the more ambulant residents made their own way around the grounds. A delicious lunch overlooking lotus lake topped off an invigorating day. The feedback from residents was overwhelming – they can’t wait to go back again.
