Meadow in the metropolis

A vast and gorgeous meadow of summer flowers has sprung up in the Sydney CBD!

It’s in the Royal Botanic Gardens.

The meadow was full of people. Small children were running along the winding pathways with bright, colourful zinnias, cosmos and marigolds, towering overhead. Others found their own beauty complemented by the lovely scene.

Insects were delirious with joy. I was too.

My visit was last Saturday, so there is still time for you to hop on a train and head to the big smoke to enjoy this wonderful botanic exhibit. Don’t forget your camera!

Have you grown a meadow garden? I’m keen to find out how it’s done. Any tips you can share?

  1. I wish I could grow a garden like that. Not enough rain, not enough soil and too much wind! Oh well, I can keep dreaming. Thanks, Mel

      Yes it’s a dream isn’t it…

    I have not intentionally grown a meadow garden. When I was a kid, there were many wildflowers that came up in the meadow behind my Pa’s home in Montara. I weeded out what did not bloom, and eventually, the wildflowers took over, but I don’t think that is quite the same thing.

    Someone else recently posted pictures of a garden of this style in England, which I thought was odd. It looked like a garden in Chicago. It even had prairie grasses. The style seems to be gaining popularity in other regions.
