You just can’t beat a flower festival on a sunny day. Even a rainy day. This weekend we had both extremes of weather… and you know what? There was something nice about both of them. Sitting on a marquee verandah (out of the rain) drinking coffee next to swathes of tulips and watching the world go by was fabulous. So much so we came back the next day to do it some more.
Rain kept the crowds down at and in the soft light the flowers really made bright spots of loveliness. On the sunny day the flowers were on fire.
Some of the crowd needed to be on fire too. Apparently people have been seen to dump their kiddies amongst the flowers, take a snap and run away. We didn’t see any of that. Lots of signs though > Please do not enter flowerbeds. Way too polite I think.
Sadly, Floriade is nearly over for another year, ends 14 October 2012.
Get your skates on if you plan to go.
Happy weekend everyone!
