….to design with flowers….

Part 2.

After a quick visit to Parliament House and checking into our hotel we walked to Floriade. Floriade is a flower and entertainment festival held annually in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park featuring extensive displays of flowering bulbs with integrated sculptures and other artistic features. Floriade comes from the Latin word floriat, which means to design with flowers. This is my second time at Floriade and first for my husband and son. It really is a must – an explosion of colour and blooms everywhere. The most common bulb here is the tulip, and it is such a stunning flower with so many varieties. You will see by the rest of my post how it is very easy to become trigger happy and take so many photos – everywhere you turn is an ‘isn’t this gorgeous’ moment.
