We had such a beautiful day for our trip to Floriade last week. In case you don’t know it, it’s the annual spring flower festival that runs for a month over September and October. We missed it last year as we were overseas so it was nice to return again. My Dad came with us this time, we had been trying to get he and Mum to visit since we moved to Canberra but she was never well enough. He really enjoyed his time there and since he’s become quite the gardener he was literally on his knees examining the soil! He also, at age 81, had his first ride on a ferris wheel, which is the only way to truly appreciate the elaborate garden bed designs.
You can see by my photos what a glorious day we had. There’s nothing like Canberra in spring.
