BAAG FLOWER MURAL

Bulleen Art and Garden (BAAG) is a gallery and plant nursery on Manningham Road in Bulleen. It is easy to spot with its bright red, purple and yellow coloured wall jumping out at you as you drive past. Artwork and fun signs invite you in.

There is a garden specialty store stocking so much more than just a simple mix of products for the backyard. They've got hand-woven baskets, food preserving equipment, cookbooks and kitchen items. There are imported garden lanterns, unusual dining ware and sculptures to complement outdoor dining. There are shoes, gloves and other gardening apparel as well. And all of the nursery supplies and plants you would expect to find as well. A gallery offers quirky artworks for sale and there are always experienced nursery people to talk to regarding gardening queries.

This mural is found in the water garden area and has been painted by Paul Kalemba in 2009. It is unusual as it is painted on copper panel. The waterlily/frog theme suits the water garden section very well!

  2. Looks like a fun place - I'd have to guard my wallet though, as I feel like money would be flying out of it as I fail to impulse to make some purchases!

  3. It took me a second glance to realize the red flower was painted not the real thing.
