flowers flowers everywhere!

As I mentioned in my last post, I was lucky enough this week to be asked by my company to head along to the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show - Growers Avenue Cocktail Party - and take some photos of the awesome work our members were involved in.

The Growers Avenue is an initiative by Flowers Victoria, the peak industry group for Victorian flower growers. The Avenue offers Victorian growers an opportunity to showcase their flowers to the public - and what a bloomin' marvellous display there was!

Unlike last year, this year the growers worked with florists to arrange their flowers in the big produce bins, with lots of creative designs on show.

Victoria's cut-flower growers do a magnificent job, don't you agree? I might just have to go out and buy myself a bunch this weekend!

look at those cute little guys hiding away in there! loved this display!

beautiful roses!

I've always had a soft spot for iris', love how they're tucked away in there!

I'm kicking myself for not writing down the creators of these marvellous designs, how fantastic are they?! There was a whole row of them, these two were my faves!

If you're in Melbourne and looking for something to do this weekend - don't hesitate - rush off to the Flower Show before it's finished for another year!
