The Hungry Hikers made their annual visit to the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers this week. The change in altitude to Toowoomba [600m], makes a quite dramatic difference. Here, near the coast, there are few signs that spring is approaching. In fact, the dry conditions of the past month, is rapidly turning our lawns to brown and few people have 'spring like' gardens. Native shrubs are the order of the day. They are beautiful in their own way, but the colour explosion we experienced on our arrival, had us ecstatic immediately.
The theme in Laurel Bank's main garden this year, is dinosaurs. Our Ben loves them, so it was quite necessary for me to take many photos here. Unfortunately the images of the dinosaurs in the garden beds weren't as obvious as in previous years, even from the viewing platform.
A perfect day!
I would love to read your comment.
