Yesterday we took in the flower show at Crown Casino -- I came home with about 70 pix, ranging from indifferent to just plain bad.

On the way in, took this one from Queen's Bridge of the old disused railway bridge (which has been an eyesore for years) being refurbished as a pedestrian walk-cum-mall.

Note colour of the water -- the Yarra is said to be the country's only river that flows upside down -- it's too thick to drink and it's too thin to plough...

Here are some of the flower displays -- I think they are mostly orchids (gambling pays for some people...)

The same display through the glass from the hotel foyer.

Another display -- again through the glass, which gives some unreal effects.

Idle, Thanks for sharing the pictures! That's a great idea turning the railroad bridge into a walk thru mall !

frankly, the wild flowers you shot on the way home are prettier than the ones on exhibit! that's a nice shot! but then, i never cared for pink flamingoes anyway....

Agreed -- the show is nice to look at, but far too contrived and elaborate.
