Queen's Square, Living Colour

'Living Colour' is a summer extravaganza of floral displays around the city and inner city suburbs. These flowers and plants are located at Queen's Square, in front of the Hyde Park Barracks Museum. The floral arrangements feature blue and white salvia, spearmint, purple sage and lavender, curly parsley and lettuce, purple, white and red petunias and red begonias.


  1. How lovely to see this around the city. Is it done by a local garden club, or does the city hire folks to do them.

    1. Linda, they are installed by the City of Sydney every year. The plants are sold at the end the season with proceeds going to charity.

  2. Love the architecture in this square. And the historical importance.

  3. Mmmmmm, looks like lettuce, might stroll by. (snip)

  4. Beautiful! Sydney has such charm and such a progressive government.

  5. Beautiful! It's a great idea to sell the plants after the season.

  6. It looks like a fountain that was turned into a garden.

  7. Great shot, Jim and the Living Colour idea is fantastic!
