The Southern Highlands are ablaze with colour
Sydney-siders it’s time to run for the hills. Get on the Hume Highway and travel for an hour or so and you’ll hit the town of Mittagong. The lovely people at the Information Centre there – on the left as you enter the town – will be happy to provide you with maps of the area and information about the annual Bowral Tulip Time Festival.
Tulip Time is one of the nation’s biggest floral festivals, with a massed display of 100,000 bulbs – it’s a photographer’s dream. Whoever planted the gardens at the Mittagong Information Centre has a great eye for colour and the images in this post are just a smidgeon of the region’s floral extravaganza.
Whether you’re a gardener, a photographer, a rugby lover!, or just holed up with cabin fever during the school holidays, this event is well worth the drive. You can check out some of the Southern Highlands open gardens while you’re there.
If you take any pics at Tulip Time send us your best shots and we’ll feature them on Costa’s Pinterest Boards.
If you, or your sustainability/gardening oriented organisation would like some help raising awareness of your cause, drop me a line at [email protected]
I’d also love to hear from anyone who has a vege garden success story to share, or anyone who has great pics of you and/or the family/neighbourhood/friends at work in the garden – we want to hear from you and share your inspirational stories.
