Floriade 2009



Yesterday we finally made it to Floriade. The weather held out, which was nice. I have never been so late in the event when all the flowers are just starting towards the end of their blooms. This years theme was Mind, Body and Soul, which I think is fitting for a floral festival. There is something very serene about mass plantings of flowers. A few other things that struck me this year; it's been raining so the flowers looked lovely and it's expensive - $21 for the 3 of us to ride the 'Giant Wheel', although the view from the top was almost worth it. Lucky it's only once a year.
