On New Year's Eve gardeners walked from all over the town to gather on Vincent Street.
We assembled as a small representative of the gardening community, to walk among other groups in the annual Daylesford NYE parade.
Around 2000 people turned up to witness and enjoy the historic parade, which included a brass band, superheroes, a tip scavengers' float, a pipe band, the CFA, SES and many others.
Cat came as a flower, David came as a gardener-forester in bright red PJs, and Su impersonated Willow the goat.
Zero came as, well, himself. Awesome dog!
Kirsten, Nick and Ashar came as the bee family — bee keeper, bee hive and bee.
It was a beautiful, hot night and we gardeners won the grand prize for best 'float'.
The $500 donated by the Bendigo Community Bank will go on our Wombat Hill Nursery account and keep us in the black in 2017.
Wishing you all a lean, green and joyous year ahead.
