Anyway we went away for about 24 hrs this weekend and guess where?
|No it's a bit far to go for the weekend|
|Yes there are plenty of these here|
|Somewhere where the shadows give you long legs|
|Yes Canberra our capital|
Anyway we came down this weekend to attend Floriade. A spring festival Canberra puts on each year which focuses on spring bulbs. Sydney is a bit too warm for tulips. We can grow them but they simply get smaller and smaller every year until they disappear. When we left Sydney on Sat it was about 24 degrees and by the time we got to Canberra it was a very chilly 8. Happy days for all those spring bulbs.
|Poppies are so cheerful|
|I love the ruffled tulips|
|the colours were terrific|
So by day you could see patterns they had made in the displays (I didn't get any good photos of these). But by night there were light displays which transformed them totally.
|Glow in the dark bird display|
|The ordinary daisies took on movement of there own|
Floriade takes place in spring every year. It is a fantastic atmosphere. It is free by day although you pay for nightfest it is well worth a visit. Hope your long weekend finds you well
