'THE GREENERY' MURAL

The Greenery Garden Centre has been operating on a bend of the Yarra river in Heidelberg for over 35 years. It is a wonderful place where one's gardening and lansdcaping needs are catered for. One can find outdoor furniture, homewares, plants and a huge variety of outdoor living needs: Water features, pots and planters, indoor and outdoor garden art and cast iron urns and  fountains.

The centre has extensive display gardens for view. Constructed over the winter/spring period of 2013, The Greenery now have one of the  most extensive display gardens in Melbourne with many plant varieties on show to provide garden inspiration.

A distinctive mural is found on the back wall of the shadehouse and it has been painted by Sandra Drummond and Patrick Jones in 2005. It provides a wonderful trompe l'oeil effect with a rolling landscape that blends with the real plants for sale and the trees behind the wall it has been painted on.

  1. Looks like the mural is quite extensive. Not only a lovely backdrop but also a source of gardening inspiration. Love the faithful rendering of the eucalyptus tree. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
