This afternoon, we took a trip to Floriade.
It is a flower festival held every spring in Canberra from mid September to mid October. It always is one of my favourite family excursions, not just because I adore all of the gorgeous spring bulbs in bloom, bringing the children out for a day of floral splendor! But because every Floriade marks the true beginning of spring. The colour, and the magic of this wonderful season, our gift of new life after a cold grey(ish) winter!
And I get a chance to take ridiculously picturesque photographs like these...
I thought this looked like two ladies in yellow bonnets chatting gaily in the afternoon sun!
