Cherry Blossoms, Australia
This post is going to be all kinds of flowery and pinky and girlish… Add into the mix a bit of polka dots too.
Those who follow my blog would know that I have been visiting the Tulip Top Gardens in Canberra for the last two years every Spring. They open their beautiful gardens for three weeks every year for everyone to enjoy the spectacular display of Tulips and Cherry Blossoms
You might have to endure an avalanche of flowery photos until I find something more fascinating.
I visited the garden last weekend with my friends, and we all were woww wowingg all through the morning and afternoon, even with a mouthful of food. This is definitely a place for selfie lovers. The Cherry Blossoms drew everyone in. Pink, white, yellow, purple – the trees stood glamorously in this impeccably maintained garden.
I think yellow is my favorite color again.
After roaming around the garden, admiring the blossoms and varieties of Tulips, we walked uphill where you get a stunning view of the landscape around Canberra.
Free tea/coffee, sausages and Egg sandwich were served at the garden. We sat together around one of the white round tables, listening to live music and enjoying the cool afternoon breeze.
I feel a hint of sadness when I think how shortlived the life of a cherry blossom is. The tree looks like any normal tree rest of the year. But when its time, they burst into something so unreal and dreamlike. Their presence makes everything look incredibly beautiful and graceful. Just a glimpse of these flowers would lift your mood. Maybe that’s what they are trying to teach as well. It doesn’t matter how long you have been on this earth, but were you able to make an impact? Did you make someone smile?
