CELEBRATIONS.....


This week our town celebrates the Festival of the Gardens - Passionate gardeners open their grounds for viewing.  Bus loads of gardening enthusiasts come from all over to view and enjoy their efforts.  A focal presentation in the main street   -  Orange sculptures - Erected in the main street.........





Each year various clubs, schools, local firms, get together to erect these amazing sculptures made with oranges, donated by local growers.  There is some technique they use with chicken wire and rubber bands to hold the fruit together resulting in interesting symbols and shapes.


Noticed the Airplane in the background - local landmark near the Tourist Information Center.  It is known as the "plane on a stick" and if you have to meet visitors from out of town, it is an easy place to describe and find......


We had rain last night (good for the farmers) but I hope the weather turns back to warm and mild for the up-coming weekend.  Visitors to the festival have a great Winery, garden and general rural country experience.



Cheers from MLR
