Melbourne Cup

Melbourne cup Day today here in Victoria and yellow roses are the order of the day for all fashion savy race goers, each day over the cup carnival features a different flower, mostly roses, except for Derby Day which has a blue cornflower, then the cup is yellow roses, Oaks Day, otherwise known as ladies day is pink roses and Stakes Day or family day is red roses. Flemmington racecourse has the most amazing rose garden with a lovely Crepescule hedge and they get them to flower just at the right time every year.
You can see the hedge in this photo it's the apricot line down the side of the track.
An update on the hexies......well I'm still tempted but I really need to get some UFO's out of the way first!
