The Federation Quilt is on display in the entrance foyer of the Peterborough Town Hall in the mid-north of South Australia. It was made by the local Peterborough Patchwork Quilters group, who also put on special displays of quilts during the annual Arts and Cultural Festival every Easter.
This special rose garden is situated between the road from Angaston and Nuriootpa and the Barossa Quilting and Craft Cottage in the Barossa Valley of South Australia. Over the last few days I’ve shared some of my photos from that garden and today I’ve added a few more.
The Barossa Quilt and Craft Cottage between Angaston and Nuriootpa is a mecca for people interested in craft, especially quilting, My wife and daughter like to stop and browse through their stock when we pass by on our way to the mid north, or coming home to Murray Bridge.
I like looking in this historic cottage too, but I also enjoy the wonderful rose garden between the road and the cottage. Yesterday I showed some photos taken there last summer. Today I want to share a few more photos of the magnificent blooms.
We often travel to the mid north of South Australia to visit family in Clare and Peterborough. We have a number of alternative routes we can take to get there, all of them going through various parts of the wine growing region of the Barossa Valley. Between the towns of Angaston and Nuriootpa is a small historic cottage now occupied by the Barossa Quilt and Craft shop (see photo below). My wife regularly likes to stop for a short break and look at what they have in stock. Meanwhile I admire their lovely rose garden out the front of the cottage.
A few months ago I was passing the cottage by myself, but actually stopped, turned around and went back to take photos of the rose bushes in full bloom. It was an intoxicating blend of colour and perfume in the bright summer sunshine. I just had to share it with my readers.
