I'm a freelance writer who lives on the Bellarine Peninsula. I enjoy finding new things to see and do in the beautiful area that I live in.
With the conclusion of winter, and the warmer months fast approaching, it's time to start sprucing up the outdoor areas of your home in anticipation of barbeques and get-togethers with family and friends. There's no better way to do this than to plant a wide variety of brightly coloured plants and flowers in the garden, to compliment the freshly mown grass and stylish outdoor furniture that adorns your patio (if you're lucky enough to have all of the above, of course). Even if you don't, you surely have room for a pot plant or two, even if they do have to be relegated to sitting on the windowsill. But what if you have no idea what to do when it comes to botany and the like? What if you don't have a green thumb, let alone the ability to grow anything with petals and leaves?
Luckily, the Clifton Springs Garden Club will be holding their Open Day on Saturday 5 October, and will be able to help you with any of your gardening needs. To be held at the Drysdale Uniting Church Hall, in Palmerston Street, Drysdale, there will be plenty of gardening-orientated things to see and do. You can purchase plants, gardening magazines and books, or wander around and look at an exhibition of plants that have been grown by members of the Garden Club. There will also be a photographic exhibition of flowers, and a selection of botanical paintings will be on show for those interested.

Visitors can sit and enjoy Devonshire Tea for $5, or try their luck in the giant raffle, where there is plenty of gardening-related booty to be won.
Members from the Garden Club can help you grow a colourful garden all year round
Entry to the Open Day is a gold coin donation. Whether you're serious about gardening, or just interested in seeing what's around in the world of botany, you are sure to get your money's worth by attending on the day.
