Every week during late August and September Pittwater Online receives emails requesting 'more Spring flowers!'.

Readers love those photos taken by other Readers and shared of all our wonderful native wildflowers, our passion for bees, birds and blooms and even just a view of a shady nook somewhere in Pittwater with a winding path beneath tall green trees.

This week, thanks to our own Community Photography snapper extraordinaire, Michael Mannington, we can give you yet another whole page of brilliance in bloom.

On Saturday the 28th of September, the Mona Vale Garden Club held their 48th Annual Show in the Ted Blackwood Hall at Warriewood. This was a visual feast for the eyes and nose of displays of flowers, potted plants, vegetables, herbs and floral art.

Mona Vale Garden Club's 48th Spring Flower Show is a great inspiration for National Gardening Week (13-19 October 2019) with a focus this year on children and nurturing and inspiring the next generation of gardeners.  You can start with a few ideas shared this Issue in the DIY Ideas page for the Spring School Holidays - but for now, and for all of you who keep calling out for 'more flowers' during Spring - the wonderful exhibits seen at this year's Mona Vale Garden Club Flower Show.
