A spectacular show for spring

THE birds are singing, the sun is shining and the flowers are most certainly blooming.

Spring is here and so is the 2014 Spring Garden Spectacular.

Tricia Woodstock from the Ipswich Orchid Society said the two-day event would bring a splash of colour to Silkstone State School this weekend.

"The garden spectacular will include magnificent displays of orchids, bromeliads, African violets, hibiscus and Australian plants," she said.

"There will be lace making demonstrations, a well-stocked craft stall and floral art sales.

"An information area will be provided for patrons to obtain advice and information on growing plants."

The event has been organised by the Ipswich Orchid and Bromeliad Societies and profits raised will be donated to Ipswich Meals on Wheels.

"Light refreshments will also be available throughout the show and arrangements can be made for morning or afternoon tea for groups and bus trip patrons," she said.

The Garden Spectacular will be held today from 8.30am to 4pm and tomorrow from 8.30am to 2pm.

Admission costs $3 while children under 12 are admitted free. For more information contact Tricia on 0414 257 132.
