Hello Spring Hello Yellow

Hello Spring!  Hello Yellow Flowers / Yellow Shoes / Giant Yellow Inflatable Duck.

I went to Canberra’s Floriade festival on 21st September.  I was wearing yellow shoes and when I looked down at the yellow flower bed, I just had to take a photo for Instagram!

Look at those beautiful yellow flowers, so pretty!

We also had our own giant (4 metre) inflatable duck on the Kangaroo Pond, raising awareness for the Yellow Van, a Communities @ Work service which delivers fresh food to 100 charities and refuges supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged people throughout Canberra. (Read more about it here: Big Duck Floats in For Yellow Van Food Rescue Appeal)

There’s lots to see and do at Floriade – the Petting Zoo is always so fun! They had sparkly collars on the little lambs and baby goats and there was even a pink / punk pony!
