Yesterday Di and I went off to view the parks and some of the exhibits of the carnival. This is my first time, and I must say I was blown away by the colours, and the flowers. The people who plan this carnival have it all down the the nth degree. After such a cold and windy winter, who could have expected the flowers to bloom just at the right time. This is a sample of what we saw. It was an amazing experience.
We also visited the Teapot Extravaganza. This gave us an insight into all the lovely teapots and tea sets that were used in the past when the taking of tea was an art form. However, after taking just these photos my camera batteries decided to go flat so I only have the character teapots. Di has some more on her blog
The work of the ladies is just extraordinary with such lovely scarves and hats, and beautifully knitted shawls and felted jewellery.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the quilt show, and will make a separate blog about that. The quilts are just amazing.The last photo I have called 'a rose by any other name"....ha ha. This is a garden of pansies....what an assortment of colours there were.
