Display of Gnomes at Floriade 2007 Canberra
Our holiday in Canberra
Over recent days (weeks actually) I have written about the delights of our visit to Floriade 2007 in Canberra. We were astounded at the magnificent displays of flowers in bloom. Floriade this year did not only display flowers. In one quite corner of the park there was a display of garden gnomes. Many Australian gardens display garden gnomes in a wide range of shapes and designs, so it was quite appropriate to include such a display at Floriade.
The inclusion of garden gnomes as a part of Floriade has become a much loved tradition of the month long festival. It is actually a competition with children, schools and community groups encouraged to participate. As a retired elementary teacher I really appreciated the sentiment expressed on the sign shown in the photo below.
