Ian and Maureen Davenport have lived in Melba for 25 years and their large, mature garden backs onto Mt Rogers Reserve. Maureen says when snow comes down to 600m in Canberra, they get snow in the garden, usually every two years and she makes a small snowman out the back as a tradition. Walking up the steep driveway is a treat as it is lined with scented leafed shrubs, particularly salvias, and massed flowers, mostly blue and white.
