The weather is just starting to turn cold here in Melbourne, and I’m taking advantage of the COVID-19 shut down to get all of my garden work under control before Winter. Now is the time to start pruning those fruit trees and planting the next round of crops. It’s also your last chance to plant flowering bulbs for the Spring. I managed to paint some of my deck furniture before the storm (with hail) descended upon us.
When my friend, Terri, suggested that we do the tour of the Government House gardens, I was more than happy to participate. And what a great morning it was. We walked around the lawns, gardens and kitchen garden of the property, and were provided with a wonderful commentary from head gardener, Michael. It’s well worth the time, and entry is free.

Here are some photos from the day:
I thoroughly enjoyed my day out at the Melbourne International Garden Show. There were some great exhibits and I have many more ideas for my garden. Although, may main aim for 2019 is to finish the paving down the side of the garden and do some much needed repair work on some of the old garden beds.
Here are my photos of the event:
