Gorgeous Cherry Blossoms at Tulip Top Gardens


It's that time of the year when Cherry Blossoms adorn the roadsides in Australia. Spring is my favorite season here. The weather is just perfect for any kind of outing and the landscape is beautified by numerous variety of flora.

Like the last two years, this September too, I went to the stunning Tulip Top Gardens in Canberra, known for their gorgeous collection of Tulips and fascinating colors of Cherry Blossoms. They open their gardens every spring from mid September to mid October, for everyone to enjoy the bewitching beauty of nature.

We started quite late from Sydney and reached Canberra just before midnoon. On each visit, I find myself stuck at the entrance, mesmerised by the beauty of the place. Doesn't the entrance look magical!!



This section of the garden is called waterfall.


You can find Cherry Blossoms of almost every color. I didn't even know that so many varieties exist.




Since it was a bright and sunny day, the yellow blooms looked even more striking that day.



At the end of the garden, there's a path that goes uphill. Beautiful pink and white cherry blossoms were blooming along the side lanes. From the top of the hill, you get a stunning view of the landscape around Canberra.






The white Cherry Blossoms looked like snowflakes settled on the trees.


We spent the afternoon in the garden, treated ourselves to free tea/coffee, egg sandwiches and some live music. Apart from the flowers, what I love the most about the garden is it doesn't get too crowded, thus maintaining the aesthetic feel of the place. 

Hope I will be back next year too.
