Welcome to October! It’s spring in my part of the world and I live in the tulip capital of Australia. Canberra is known for its beautiful Floriade festival by the lake. Yesterday my husband and I visited Tulip Top Gardens, a flower farm that’s only a short drive out of town. We enjoyed a lovely morning wandering around the fabulous gardens, taking lots of photos, and drinking good coffee. A pleasant way to start our three day holiday weekend (Monday is Labour Day).
This weekend is football Grand Final weekend for our two most popular professional codes. The AFL (Australian Rules) Grand Final was held on Saturday afternoon in Melbourne (Victoria), and the NRL (Rugby League) Grand Final will be held tonight in Sydney (New South Wales). AFL is historically the dominant code in Victoria, South Australia, and Western Australia whereas NRL is from New South Wales and Queensland. Both codes are played around the country, including women’s leagues. Victorians enjoyed a public holiday on Friday called “Friday before the AFL Grand Final” (they don’t have the Monday public holiday in Victoria).
