The regular group of bus trippers enjoyed perfect weather again for our trip to the organic rose farm at Eudlo.
We had a lovely picnic lunch at Maroochy Botanic Gardens then Caz gave us a tour of her rose farm.
She has been working hard through the drought and the roses look strong and healthy from her efforts. Lots of photos were taken of the lovely blooms. There were also other bee attracting flowers and several bee hives. We all tried the rose syrup, rose honey and edible flowers.
Our amazing driver Paul from Wests delivered us safely along some tricky sections!
This was the last bus trip for the year and we hope more people can join us next year.
