Garden Show - beauty in surprising places

On the same day that we visited the State Library, Old Melbourne Jail and walked what seemed like a marathon of streets, we made our way to the Garden Show in Carlton Gardens and the Exhibition Buildings.
I confess that I was really too tired to take a lot of interest in the Garden Show......

....... until we went into the Exhibition Building. That's when my interest in the plants decreased whilst my admiration for another beautiful building rose. Sadly, my photos barely do it justice.

Wow, what an amazing building! So light and airy, and soooo ornate. A tribute to its time. Thanks for sharing.

I once sang in a thousand voice choir in that building......it was fantastic.
Do you have the Cassette as yet?
I have photo copied the back of the album cover if you would like it.

I can see why that fantastic building stole your interest away from the lovely plant displays. It really is amazing and very beautiful. It's difficult to imagine all the work that went into creating that masterpiece.
Your pictures do indeed do it justice, in my humble opinion :)
