Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers

September 28, 2009

 

        Toowoomba is an hour and a half driving west of the capital city of Brisbane in the state of Queensland, on the east coast of Australia. It is up in the Great Dividing Range. Each year in spring they stage a magnificent week of flowers, a garden competition and carnival that attracts visitors from far and wide.           

          The weekend was windy and blowing red dust , yet the Toowoomba gardens still looked magnificent.
Congratulations to everyone who put in so much hard work to enter the competitions or to put their gardens on display for everyone to walk through and enjoy.
          Flowers of every colour were there, vintage cars, and a street carnival. 

          Plus, lots of novelty things scattered around to keep this crazy writer very happy.  I’m addicted to anything wild and wacky. Apart from my love of meeting all sorts of weird and wonderful people. 

          Have you ever seen an umbrella/ flower- An umbrelliad?   How about a floral dancing skirt? Or a giant flower ball made of red buckets? A hedge trimmed like a steam train? Petal People?

        And of course, being addicted to the lovely colour- PINK – I was in my element. Not only for Carnival Floats, flowers, balloons, and umbrellas, but also a Pink Cadillac.  Simply divine!
