Fleurs de Villes – Melbourne

Last month, Melbourne’s Emporium hosted the immaculate floral mannequin display called Fleurs de Villes for a second time this year. The theme this time round was NOEL and Melbourne florists created stunning displays around the theme of Christmas in Australia. I absolutely loved this showcase! The striking colours and floral combinations were so beautifully put together and made for an amazing day out.

Here are also some highlights from February’s Rose showcase:

Happy New Year, dear friends! Wishing you all a very happy 2016.

While my family and I were holidaying on the Mornington Peninsula last week, we spent a peaceful afternoon in a 230-hectare old Homestead known as The Briars, in Mount Martha. There was something so captivating about all the flora and fauna there that I decided to switch my Nikon camera to Close-Up mode and immerse myself in the vast amount of different flowers and leaves prevalent throughout the gardens. The Briars is an excellent place to spend a quiet Sunday afternoon, go for a walk along the boardwalk with the possibility of finding kangaroos and koalas in their natural surroundings, smell the roses, hear the roosters call and admire a beautiful maze of perfectly trimmed hedges. It’s truly every Victorian nature lover’s paradise, with a lovely cafe and restaurant also onsite. The best part is – it also has free admission.
