Well, the Australian Garden Show Sydney has come and gone for this year. If you had the chance to visit I hope you enjoyed it. I really enjoyed my two days wandering around the show, held in Centennial Parklands and what a magical location. Just walking through the park to get to the show filled me with inspiration and it usually does.
Some of the highlights for me were attending a talk by Patrick Blanc, French vertical garden specialist. He showed a slideshow of pictures he had taken from around the world when researching and discovering the beautiful and endless possibilities of using soil-less plants in vertical plantings. I have a new appreciation for his craft and would like to do my own experimenting in my own garden – time will tell how that pans out!
I went to see ‘The Gourmet Farmer’ also known as, Matthew Evans. It was a wonderful and memorable talk and once again I was inspired, this time to have my plot of land to cultivate from and return to it nutrition, goodness and love. Actually that has been a dream of mine for some time, the talk reinforced my desire to escape the city and return ‘home’ to the country.
I didn’t seem to capture quite as many pictures as I’d hoped (I was too busy chatting, browsing and committing things to memory). But, below is a snap shot of what was happening at the Australian Garden Show.
I hope you have been enjoying the wonderful spring gardens and the glorious weather that has accompanied it.
Until next time.
