Kaiya and the Queen

Queen Elizabeth visits Floriade

I was pretty excited to be invited to attend the Queen’s visit to Floriade.

Her Majesty (as I think I should address her), came to visit the Victory Garden and she was on a pretty tight schedule, but she also had time to have a really, really quick look at our award-winning garden!

I designed the Food and Flavours of the Australian Bush garden to complement Floriade’s theme ‘A Feast for the Senses’. The native garden showcased huge gymea lilies, bright crimson waratahs and yellow and red kangaroo paws.

I hope she liked them!
