Toowoomba prize winning gardens





As you can see some of these gardens were an absolute delight to visit. The climate in Toowoomba suits a lot of plants that we couldn't grow in Brisbane because of our humidity so we were a little envious when we saw the beautiful Rhododendrums and Daphne growing.
A visitor to my previous post kindly pointed out a mistake I'd made. The water provided to residents in the garden competition was bore water not recycled water, my apologies. I hope you will enjoy the beauty and colours of these gardens as much as we did.

I've often heard of the wonderful garden displays in Toowoomba but have not yet had the pleasure of visiting that lovely city.

The gardens certainly are beautiful and a credit to all concerned, especially during this time of extreme drought.

Thank you, Roy, for sharing your photos of these delightful and inspiring gardens.
