The Aussie team behind the Trailfinders Australian Garden presented by Fleming’s has been awarded Best in Show. I can only imagine the hoopla that rose out of that lively team of builders.

This was Wes Fleming’s, head of Fleming’s Nurseries, ninth and final attempt at the show….and his team took the top honors for the first time.   It is always so great to see someone go out on top.

The garden was designed by Phillip Johnson and it presents a sustainable habitat complete with monolithic stone gorge, running waterfalls, a studio structure and billabong.

All rights are reserved www.pithandvigor.com I had to look up what a Billabong is (besides a surfer supply company).  Here is what wikipedia says:

Billabong (pron.:  bil-ə-bong) is a Wiradjuri word that is used for an isolated pond that is left behind after a river changes course. Billabongs are usually formed when the path of a creek or river changes, leaving the former branch with a dead end. Billabongs, reflecting the arid Australian climate in which these “dead rivers” are found, fill with water seasonally and are dry for a greater part of the year.

More Winners ahead….

I’m so sad to not be at the show myself, but Adam Woodruff  is Studio ‘g’s man on the ground.  He has taken pictures of the show for us all to enjoy.  Thanks Adam!
