This weekend Miss Bok and I attended the Melbourne Flower & Garden show. It is set every year in the world heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building and surrounding Carlton Gardens. It was a chilly Autumn day but luckily we avoided any rain or rather, the rain avoided us! Here are a few pics from the event.
Inside the building
My favourite show garden was the kitchen garden. I really like the coop.
I really like it! Other than it being timber (mites) I really love it!
I love that even the borders on the ground were edible, I've tried this myself but with limited success. It works out well to begin with but doesn't last.
Love those curly iron stakes that the apples are climbing over.
For small spaces, this lean-to glasshouse is a great idea!
Love these, I've been looking for a 'pond' and this seems ideal. It's an old Sri Lankan cooking pot but I'm not sure that fish or frogs would survive in it and no one is really sure what material the pot is and what would leach into the water.
I nearly took home a few of these iron letters!
Love these coat racks made from reclaimed timber
Reminds me of Easter :)
Another chook tractor I found
The world heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building
Also remind me of Easter. Am I slightly obsessed with egg shapes at present...?
I loved this woodland garden!
Yup the woodland garden was my favourite
I've never seriously thought of a swimming pool but this one is cool - totally see-through, the bar stools are actually in the pool
Why doesn't my produce ever look as healthy as this...brassica that aren't eaten??! Looks so lovely sans nibble holes :)
One of the cubbys for the cubby auction to raise money for needy children
And yet another coop!
Vertiscape are amazing with fabulous products and ideas. I'd love a green wall!
Tulips...bulbs for next Spring...
Love the tree sculptures
Limestone sculpting at work
Just as we were leaving, so was a hot air balloon!
