Not even wild and windy weather could damper the spirits of those who headed out to an open garden to help raise funds for Coleambally Can Assist.
The gardens of Peter and Marion Wythes in Coleambally were opened to the public on Saturday as part of fundraising efforts for the organisation.
With winds whipping upwards of 50 to 60 kilometres an hour, visitors who braced the weather were treated to a range of immaculate flora of all shapes and sizes on display, with roses, hollyhocks, bottlebrushes and salvias decorating the gardens.
Can Assist member Sue Hardy said the event was a success despite the windy conditions on the day.
"It was quite a successful day considering it was a windy, dusty day," Ms Hardy said.
"We still had about 100 people come through."
Ms Hardy said visitors who braced the weather were treated to a range of activities throughout the day outside of looking through the gardens themselves.
Morning tea and lunch were served to visitors and a jumping castle and colouring activities were available for children.
A stall from Griffith wreath-maker Jenna Colpo was also on display at the garden, with visitors able to view and purchase from a selection of fashionable floral wreaths.
Visitors from around the region came out for the event, with a number of travellers from the wider Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area turning out for the afternoon.
Ms Hardy said one particular group who made the trip was a cycling group from Griffith, who made the round trip riding against the powerful wind conditions.
"There was even a lady who drove from Yarrawalla [for the day]," Ms Hardy said.
"There were many comments about how beautiful the gardens were."
The event was the second fundraising event in the past two weeks for the organisation, with the funds raised from the gardens totalling $2000.
Ms Hardy said she was very pleased with the amount of funds raised from the event, with the money raised by the gardens surpassing the $1500 raised by the fashion parade at the Coleambally Community Club which was held by Coleambally Can Assist earlier in the month.
"It just means we can keep on supporting locals who have been diagnosed with cancer," Ms Hardy said.
"Can Assist would like to thank the community for their support."
Ms Hardy said the organisation aims to plan further fundraisers towards the beginning of next year.
