This weekend’s Bundanoon Garden Ramble was a great success. Rain had been forecast, but both days ended up being sunny, and if one had to gripe, then maybe it was actually a little too hot.
There were eight gardens on show, and they all looked fabulous. There seemed to be a lot more people attending this year, including what looked like a couple of coach loads coming in from somewhere.
As well as the gardens, there were the usual gardening related stalls in the Soldiers’ Memorial Hall, and also a floral display and tea shop in the Old Methodist Church (which the Bundanoon History Group is currently leasing and hoping to turn into an ongoing town facility). Also, the Community Garden was something of a hive of activity. (In the 18 or so months since I last saw the Community Garden, it has come along in leaps and bounds, and is really looking fantastic.)
What a great showing of altruism and town pride. So many volunteers, doing their thing for the Garden Ramble committee, the Bundanoon Community Association, the Community Garden, the History Group, etc.
Anyway, I took a bunch of photos, which haven’t really done the gardens justice, but may be helpful in reminding me about a few inspirational ideas that I wouldn’t mind borrowing.
So that’s it for another wonderful garden ramble. It’s always great to see the town so full of visitors and happy volunteers. I’m already looking forward to October 2015.
