This image shows why one should not take a child to a flower festival. In 2004, we went to Floriade with Justin’s cousin, Jo, and her two girls, Eden and Bronwyn.
And this was the result.
For those who prefer blooms to bust-ups, Floriade is the biggest flower festival in the southern hemisphere. For 30 days every September and October, there are three times more flowers in Commonwealth Park than residents in its host city, Canberra.
That’s one million flowers!
