A roundabout compliment



JEFF Klepsig spends his working life surrounded by flowers and this year his gardens have hit a 'purple patch' winning compliments from both city residents and visitors.

With nine different roundabouts in full bloom with colourful yellow and blue pansies, red poppies, orange and yellow marigolds, bonfire salvia, purple and pink scented stocks and multi-hued nemesia, Coffs Harbour City Council's 'Mr Roundabout' says everything from this year's flower selection to a warm winter and rainfall has come together at the right time for a good spring display.

Jeff Klepsig, Ron Francis and Mal Russell make up the Coffs Harbour City Council team responsible for the seasonal floral displays. n Turn to Page 25 for more information on Coffs in Bloom.
