Perth Garden Week.

April 19, 2013 by Star   Comments (3)

It was a misty morning on the first day of Perth Garden Week, could hardly see the end of the road at 8am but that was the day we had decided to go and by 10am the mist had all lifted.

I set off at 10am to fill the tank and then pick up my friend. The forcast was for showers, so we both took our brollies.

It took about half an hour to get to Floreat ( the suburb it was held in), parking was easy and through the gates in a matter of moments. Right where to start..........well me being me I headed for a stall with Bali style things on it.

Then we spotted this nice garden feature on a stand by some landscapers, called "The Birdcage".......I could just image it as a lovely setting for a garden wedding.

Opposite this was a wholesale nursery display that we walked around, they had some lovely plants......

I forget what these are called but I am sure some of you will know.

There was also Clematis for Malcolm.imageimageimageimageimage

Sorry I dont know the names of any of them.

This is where I bought a Vigna Caracalla or Snail Vine.....reads like I will have to keep it well trimmed.

Being called the snail vine because the buds look similar to a snail.

Then a rest and lunch, Hamburger with plenty of salads.

We next went in the Bulbs tent where I bought a tiny Nerine, colour bright pink.

 

There were alot of stalls/tents to visit with a variety of plants and goodies, below are some photos of them.imageimageimageSome lovely Water Lillies.

One of our last stops was a stand of outdoor furniture.....here we entered in a competition to win one item on display. One guess what I would choose.

imageimageimage Yes you are right, this one.

 

I also bought these items.image

 

We then sat and had a soft serve ice-cream before heading home.

We had not one drop of rain, in fact it got quite hot 26ºC........but the minute I was home it started. The sun must shine  on the righteous.......lol

Gorgeous Sylv.

Now I wonder why the Bali hut areas were of so much interest to you!

Now if my memory serves me right, doesn't the big book say "He causes the sun to shine on the righteous AND unrighteous"? So where does that leave us the wellie wearers of the  northern hemisphere? I'm confused!!!!

Oh, I only thought the sun shone on the righteous......now I am confused too.

It's easy to confuse a blonde.......................put her in a round room and tell her to sit in the corner.....ha ha ha.

:) Very nice that show looks expensive hope you kept a tight reign on your wallet. Some lovely flowers there, the purple clematus to the right of the white one looks like "Nellemoser" to me but possibly smaller flowers.
