On the weekend I caught the train to the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show.....
They are held each year in the beautiful historic Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens.
It's a riot of color, sights, smells and so much design ideas.......
and lots of inspiration.
I love coming every year, but I haven't been for a while.....last year I was in London for the Chelsea Flower Show! So lucky! But I can't compare the two....Melbourne's Flower Show is pretty good too!
I took one of those granny trolleys and packed a lunch and got comfy on the grass with a tomatoe and cheese sandwich and some little cakes and macaroons.....very yum and quite relaxing!
Then filled the trolley with lots of 'stuff' I gathered from the stalls around the gardens.
The show is a must do if you ever visit our little city.....it's quite lovely.
Now, I must be off and store all of those (many!) spring bulbs I bought! Then come Springtime, I'll have my own little Flower and Garden Show!
