Wordless Wednesday - Outdoor Wednesday - 24/10/12 - Toowoomba Carnival of Flower Cont'

Hey Everyone,
Well another Wordless Wednesday is upon us and as per usual I'm joining Tina and Linda for Wordless Wednesday. And thankfully I remembered to join Susan at A Southern Day Dreamer for Outdoor Wednesday :)

I thought I'd finish uploading the photos from the park that I showed last week... be aware that I still have MANY more photos of the carnival still to come :). I musty apologise for all the photos but I can never pick which photos I should put up and which I shouldn't.
















I loved these duck topiaries







A photo of some of the flower beds, you can see the viewing platform in the bottom of the photo, near the "THIS" I did take photos of the beds myself but you couldn't make out what they were so instead I took a photo of the sign :)




Happy Gardening

Michael

  1. Wonderful collection of flower photos, some I have not seen before... looks like the Carnival of Flowers was a great success this year. I was there in a very dry year!

    1. Hi Jan, a most definite success. I adore going up there each year and a lot of the locals were worried due to an extreme lack of rain but thankfully it all went very well. you should come up and see it again, i can promise you, you wont regret it

  4. Throwing a bit of a jealous fit right now. Spring's beauty is so much warmer than autumn's.

    1. HSAHAHAHAHAHAH, just think, in 6 months time it will be me throwing the jealousy fit, and just think, you now get to have the pleasure of going through autumn and winter, think of the autumn leaves and the last few flowers and then the joy of being able to snuggle up in warm clothes or a blanket whilst reading a nice book or reading blogs :)

    1. Hi Faye, I have so many photos on my computer that it's only with the utmost control that I'm not flooding my blog with photos :)

      I can never decide what to take a photo of and what not to take a photo of so i just take photos of everything :)

      And I am so glad i could show you some old friends up close :)
