a day at floriade

Sunday, October 05, 2014





      

So while I'm madly procrastinating from two assignments due next week (meep), here are some snaps from when my family and I popped by Canberra for Floriade! If you didn't already know, Floriade is an annual event that features flowers, fairy floss, a ferris wheel and more. It's also possibly the only reason I'll visit Canberra, cause once you've been you've pretty much seen it all. Anyway, there were a bunch of fun installations there, but everyone knows the tulips are the stars of the show! I'm kinda bummed that we didn't get to see the night event though, it seemed like a lot of fun.





There's just something about oodles of flowers that brings out my inner Asian tourist, y'know? If only it wasn't so blindingly sunny...



      



Trying to recreate this cheesy photo, which is actually ridiculously hard to do with one person! Who would've thought?











Aaand some cherry blossoms we stumbled across. I was too late to see them bloom in Sydney, but spring in Canberra must have been delayed because of the perpetually cool weather. Anyway, I've been sidetracked from studying for far too long now! Wish me luck...

  1. Sooo many flowers, there pictures are pretty! I've never actually been to Floriade, I have the worst hayfever so I'm not sure if it'd be the best idea haha. It would be such a good daytrip though.

  2. Beautiful shots Mani, your photography of Floriade capture the fresh springtime feelings! I'm sending ~good vibes~ your way in lieu of your university assignments (I had a third year 2000 word essay due in the semester break, what a joke?) Thanks for brightening my bloglovin feed with this marvellous post!
