Following APEC, flowerbeds in the central city have never looked brighter.
The delegates have gone but the results of an intensive planting campaign will bloom on well into next year. Many of the shrubs and bedding plants were supplied by the council's own nursery in Kari Street, Grafton.
Each year the nursery grows about 80,000 shrubs and trees including many natives for planting in parks and reserves, and for revegetation programmes.
Hundreds of thousands of bedding plants are also grown for city parks and gardens says City Parks Services nursery manager, John Stevenson, pictured left with his arms full of spring colour.
