The Calyx - Sydney Royal Botanical & OMG Gardens

Post#1 by oldmangrumpy » 23 Sep 2017, 05:08


Most regular members know I am a keen gardener - this week my wife and I visited a new exhibition area, 'The Calyx', at Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens.

It is a staggering exhibition space that also contains an artistic wall of flowers about 50 metres long and 10 metres high. The nature of the displays obviously changes with the seasons. This time the exhibition featured a lot of orchids, both Australian and overseas natives. Thought I would put up some pics for the garden loving members -

Beautiful pictures, OMG. I'm fascinated by the way floral arrangements are constructed, especially in a vertical manner. Very nice. Thank you for sharing.
