Over the weekend we flew off to see Pocket Farm Garden, the location of the Qld Plant Fair through Open Gardens Australia.
Pocket Farm has a beautiful country cottage garden, established in 2003.
It is a wonderful example of how to create a cottage garden effect in a tropical climate.
Dodging showers, we enjoyed one of the guest speakers, Noel Burdette of Radio 4BC, on the 'best plants to begin a cottage garden'.
The Red Cardinal garden was created by a previous owner, in a cottage style.
It was overgrown and challenging when we came here, and we have struggled over the years to get it into some semblance of order.
At the moment, with the help of the hot and wet summer, it is looking quite good. There are flowers, and the grass is green.
Some years this is beyond achievement!
There were lots of stalls at the Fair, and we bought new salvias and geraniums, and a couple of African violets, resisting the allure of the orchids.
We were so inspired, we gardened up a treat on Sunday...
Went to choir practice on Friday...
It was so hot, I looked along the row and everybody had fans.
My two neighbours in the Alto line posed for this pic..
I love culottes...
Made them and wore them, back in the day.
Pretty sure I had this pattern once.
Definitely wore a jumpsuit with long wide flares when I was about 21.
Well, they're baaaaaack...
Style Arc patterns have released Erin Woven culottes..
and I produced these...
Cool rayon, graphic print from Spotlight, nice and easy to wear..
