My Sunday Photo 25 October 2015


a beautiful tulip in a public garden at Bowral, NSW 



Last week Mr P. and I flew to Sydney for a couple of days, then drove to Canberra for a food bloggers' conference.  Along the way we came across this beautiful little public garden in Bowral, New South Wales.  There were signs of a recent tulip festival, and happily for us, lots of tulips and other flowers were still in bloom. 

It would have been lovely to check out this delightful garden and town a bit more, but time was pressing and we had to hurry on to Canberra.  Which was in full bloom, with masses of gorgeous blossom everywhere.  Sad for the hayfever sufferers amongst us! Fortunately I am not one of them:=)

  1. I am a bit jealous, not of the tulip, but of being in Australia. I adore Aussie. X
