Nannup in the South West

 Last friday John and I took to the road our destination, Nannup Garden Festival.  I just fell in love with Nannup, such a progressive little town.  It was a lovely day, took us about an hour to get there, through beautiful natural bush.  Nannup is a timber town and most of the buildings are built of timber which reminded me of home.  How cool are these patchwork quilts hanging out on the line with yards and yards of bunting, lot of work in there.
 This is a Nannup tiger, extinct now but they did have them here.  Carved out of timber.
 yarn bombed bicycle outside the quilt house
 lots of yummy places to eat and this lovely shady hideaway
 guess who, waiting patiently enjoying the sun, a lonely little petunia in a tulip patch
 Just one block back from the main street, this old tractor sitting in the weeds

 Nannup also has a musical festival in this beautiful park where there is a stage and beautiful covered buildings to get out of the sun, they have lights in them so would be quite magical listening to the music  
they have these amazing carved totems at the entrance to the park, must of been about 8 towering above us

 the tulips where stunning in raised garden beds all around the town.
Had to add these guinea fowls, such amazing markings which unfortunately I didn't capture.
