Lovely winter gardens in Nannup

On a glorious winters day we travelled over to Nannup to attend their annual Flower and Garden Festival.  The sunhine certainly bought out the best of the flowers and the crowds of people who attended seemed to be enjoying the festivities.

Our first stop was to the tulip farm ‘Especially Tulips.  As the sun gradually made its way onto the tulips the dew glistened in the light.

Guinea fowl and ducks act as natures pest controllers by eating the slugs, snails and grasshoppers around the gardens.

Next it was into town for the festival.  The planters in the street were in full bloom and the many stall holders made the most of the large attendance.

The tulip lady was there again to provide any information needed. Isn’t she georgeous!

To finish the day off we took a leisurely stroll around Holberry House – a guesthouse surrounded by beautifully lawned gardens.  A little creek with waterfalls, tall gums trees and a variety of deciduous and flowers trees make this garden a haven for birds and wildlife.

The organisers of the festival must be so thankful for the lovely weather today. We were!

    Spectacular colours! So different to see the tulips in with an australiana bush background to the tulip farm in the dandenongs with lush green rolling hills.

    Beautiful blooms. The Tulip Lady looks like a real character and might just have had a couple of tulip wines. Eagles Vs Freo Grand Final – here’s hoping!
