I had a short visit to the annual Melbourne Flower and Garden Show in between shopping for children's birthday gifts and preparations for going to NSW and Qld in the school holidays for family visits and orienteering.
I wanted to get some tube stock plants for our soon to be revamped front and side gardens. The backyard side garden has become very shady since the neighbour's hedge is now very tall and needs more shade loving plants. The front is to be redone with natives.
It was warm day and crowded as usual and gardeners walk even more slowly and erratically than quilters ... not good when you're in a hurry!
I enjoyed seeing my favourite tulips and some of the display gardens were great. Metal artworks seemed to be popular this year.
