Spring is well an truly in the air - and there is no better way to celebrate it than at the bright, brilliant, beautiful Tesselaar Tulip Festival in sunny Silvan in the Dandenong Mountains.
There's no excuse to miss it given it's on for a whole month from the 12th of September to the 8th of October.
Have I been? Yes, many times.
What do I love most?
Well, in addition to being surrounded by beautiful blooms that remind you how good it is to be alive, I love:
The Fairy Garden for bringing out the kid in me. Buying tulip bulbs for next year's beauties. Buying potted ones for instant floral gorgeousness. Browsing lots of interesting stalls of all descriptions. The food, with plenty of yummy options to graze on.
Leaving all responsibilities behind for a deliriously
good day in the hills
