Floriade, Canberra

The largest flower show in the Southern Hemisphere, Floriade is one of the biggest annual events held in Australia’s capital Canberra. To welcome in spring Centennial Park is filled with over a million bulbs creating vast swarths of colour.dsc01513 dsc01478 dsc01473 dsc01519 dsc01525

Not all of which were planted in the ground…dsc01471 dsc01461 dsc01464

Loved the beautiful setting on Lake Burley Griffth, complete with weeping willows.dsc01487 dsc01489

Along with a few pieces of sculpture…dsc01493 dsc01499dsc01505
