Another Amazing Village Garden Market

The amazing team of Coral and Christine, with the help of a heap of fantastic volunteers, put together another successful Village Garden Market yesterday.

Garden enthusiasts and hungry residents stayed dry while they ambled through the tables full of plants and baked goods.

The girls did a great job as acting Bookies, selling tickets in next week’s Melbourne Cup Sweep.

Thanks Prue, Christine and Coral.

At these prices you could afford to fill your balcony with amazing plants.

When you weren’t buying plants, it was a great time to catch up with neighbours.

Plants. plants and more plants

The pool provided a peaceful backdrop, especially with the raindrops landing on the surface of the water, while shoppers pondered their potential purchase.

Cheryl, Tony and Anna stocked up on house-plants, while Kerrie and John, Wendy and Peter caught up on village news.

Margaret took care of sales and greetings. She had a huge smile for everyone who stopped to say hello.

Susan sold heaps of tickets for the beautiful butterfly decoration. If the person who won it is having trouble figuring out where to put it, I have the perfect spot at my place. Just saying…

Linda guarded the baked goodies. I bought some carrot cake, had it for lunch (yep – that’s what I do…), and it was so good I‘ve pre-ordered another one for next week (thanks Christine).

I don’t think Linda needed to up-sell any of the great variety of cakes and slices. Judy knew exactly what she wanted. The Brownies were really popular.

Am I the only one who thinks these plants are amazingly inexpensive?

I’ve resorted to buying plants that grow in water, not soil. So far the last lot I bought have survived.

The good old sanitiser and sign-in sheet greeted everyone on arrival. Where would we be without them.

I love those decorations that swirl around. I’m sure I’d just sit on my porch all day, watching them catch the breeze.

Mary didn’t waste any time working out which plants to buy for her balcony.

The day was a great success, and there were many more volunteers than the ones mentioned here.

To everyone who helped make the Village Garden Market another awesome success – Thank You!

Helping each other is what Mountain View residents do well, and it’s what makes this place the best place to live.
